As part of the Wessex Schools Literary Festival author Curtis Jobling visited Thornden. He talked to all Year 8 pupils plus small visiting groups from Hamble School, Hounsdown School and the New Forest Academy.
Before becoming an author Curtis worked on ‘Bob the Builder’ and he showed us how he created the original drawings for all the characters.
He then read extracts from the first of his Wereworld books (there are six in the series) and from his new book ‘Haunt’ which is a black comedy.
There was time for some questions before the session ended and the opportunity to get books signed by Curtis. The afternoon was enjoyed by all.
Copies of all Curtis’ books are available to borrow from the Library.
