ABI ELPHINSTONE AND HARRIET MUNCASTER VISITED US TO TALK ABOUT THEIR BOOKS- THIS IS WHAT HARRIET SAID:"I had a wonderful visit with the key stage one children of Whitton School. I loved hearing all their brilliant story and character ideas and seeing the really amazing bats, Pink Rabbits and dragons they all drew. I was also particularly impressed with the behaviour of all the children, right from the moment they walked into the assembly hall. They were all exceptionally attentive and made me feel very appreciated as a guest at their school." All the best, Henry and Harriet
