World Book Day came early to Radwinter Primary School.

Jack Trelawny, author of the Kernowland series of books, visited the school and talked about his work and books, and what inspired them with ideas for creating imaginary characters and settings.

Year 6 pupil Lauren Porthouse said: “The talk was truly inspirational and will definitely help with our story writing.”

Class 4 teacher Mrs Powell added “The children were enthralled by his talk. His mythical characters certainly captured their imagination.

“Many of the children bought signed copies of his books and were looking forward to reading them to find out more about the magical land of Kernowland.”
