On Thursday 14th February Years 1 to 6 walked to Saffron Green School to meet the multi-million selling and award winning author and illustrator Nick Butterworth. He wrote the Percy the Park Keeper series and Q Pootle 5 amongst many others. The visit was arranged because his book ‘The Whisperer’ is the focus of the local ‘Words in the Wood’ project which all the local schools take part in. He drew characters from the story (including the rat), read extracts from the book, talked about other books he’s written and told the children that his favourite book is ‘Treasure Island’ by Robert Louis Stevenson. The children were all well behaved and really enjoyed meeting him. The work for the ‘Words in the Wood’ project will be on display at the Metro Bank in Borehamwood – we’ll let you know when you can go and see it!
