Jim Smith’s books are really funny and we were delighted to welcome him. He talked to the children to provide inspiration for their own writing and to share the joy of reading. They also got a chance to do some drawing with him! Everyone learned how to create some funny characters by drawing along with Jim.
Brick Lane Bookshop provided a bookstall for us, so afterwards many children bought one of Jim's books book and had it signed by him. Jim also drew cartoons of them in their books. How special!
