An author who has penned more than 100 children’s books visited a Portishead school.
Trinity Primary School played host to writer Jeremy Strong on March 27 to give youngsters a chance to learn from one of their favourite storytellers.
Strong conducted writing workshops for pupils and opened the Trinity’s new outside book area.
He also held a book signing once the school day ended.
The 69-year-old has written popular books like Cartoon Kid, Romans On the Rampage, Beware Killer Tomatoes, and My Brother’s Famous Bottom – selling thousands of copies across the globe.
A school spokesman said it was brilliant to welcome Jeremy to see the pupils.
They added: “Having written more than 100 books, there was a huge amount of excitement ahead of his visit.
“As well as hosting workshops across the school, Jeremy also opened our outside book area and held a book signing for pupils and parents.”
