Christ Church junior pupils get ready for tales of The Girl Who Stole An Elephant

Pupils engrossed in books at Christ Church

Christ Church CofE Junior School in Ramsgate is preparing to host a visit from children’s author Nizrana Farook.

Nizrana’s debut novel, “The Girl Who Stole An Elephant” is currently Waterstone’s children’s book of the month and is described by them as “children’s fiction at its best”.

Nizrana is linked to the London Road school via Book Pen Pals, a scheme which links UK children’s authors and/or illustrators with schools in the UK for a year or more and ensures regular contact between schools and authors.

The visit follows on the successful visit before Christmas by Gareth P Jones, author of the popular “Pet Detectives” series of children books.  Gareth spent a day at the school doing workshops with children in all age groups across the school.
