Pupils at Backwell Junior School dressed as their favourite book characters as they welcomed author Jeremy Strong to class.

Jeremy, who has written a number of titles including Cartoon Kid and My Granny’s Great Escape, talked to pupils about his inspiration for the stories and the importance of reading.

The popular author then held a book-signing before heading to West Leigh Infant School to talk to the younger pupils.
