Fantastic fantasy fiction as new children’s author Dave Rudden visits Coleshill School

The Coleshill School hosted a visit from Dave Rudden, children’s author, as part of his tour to celebrate the publication of his debut fantasy novel ‘Knights of the Borrowed Dark’.

Children in Years 5 and 6 from Coleshill CE Primary, St Edward’s RC Primary and Woodlands School joined students in Year 7 from The Coleshill School.

It was a great opportunity for all the students to meet an author.  Dave drew them into the fantasy world of his new book with interactive activities during the morning.

Ian Smith-Childs, headteacher, said:

The children were really excited to meet the author of a published book and have a copy of the book signed by him.   Dave gave them inspiration and encouragement for their own reading and writing.  The visit was a real success.
