CHILDREN’S author Cecilia Busby visited a Portishead school to introduce some of her stories to pupils.

Year three and four students at High Down Junior School heard about the Spell Series which includes Cecilia’s first full-length novel, Frog Spell. Others in the series, set in the times of King Arthur, Camelot and Merlin, are Cauldron Spells, Ice Spell and Sword Spell.

After a question and answer session, Cecilia talked to the children about what it is like to be an author and signed copies of her books for them.
