Dear Parents,

People’s Book Prize Winner Visits Spellbrook School

The award-winning, bestselling children’s author, Billy Bob Buttons, will be visiting Spellbrook School on the afternoon of  Thursday 21st March 2019.                        

He is the author of sixteen very popular children’s books including Felicity Brady and the Wizard’s Bookshop, the bestselling Muffin Monster, Tiffany Sparrow Spook Slayer, The Cool Kids Book Prize winner, WIDE AWAKE, and the UK People’s Book Prize winner and bestseller, I think I Murdered Miss. Last year, this book sold over 40,000 in the UK alone and won the 2014 UK People’s Book Prize.

Every year, he meets with approx. 50,000 primary school children to deliver his popular literacy workshops. Throughout the afternoon, he will be delivering the workshops to Years 1 through to 6, focusing on Planning a Story, Adventure Writing and Characters.  He will also be doing a reading session with Early Years.

There will be an opportunity for your child to meet Mr. Buttons and buy a signed and dedicated book. Attached to this letter is a price list plus lots of info. on the different books they can pick from. If you wish your child to buy a signed book, simply put the money (the author will have change with him) in an envelope (with your child’s name and class written on the front) and hand it to the school office / class teacher asap.  

Mr. Buttons will be doing the book signing at the end of the school day. So, if parents wish to meet him and help their child pick a book, they can do so then.

We made the decision this year to bring an author into school for our own private workshops rather than attend the Bishop’s Stortford festival of literature.  This saves us travelling and brings a much more ‘bespoke’ workshop for each class.  A voluntary contribution towards the cost of this author visit of £2 per child would be much appreciated. This can be given to the school office / class teacher.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the School office.

Thank you
