Eager readers get to meet famous author Jean Daish

Young book worms had the opportunity to quiz author Jean Daish about her stories.

Members of the Haddenham Community Junior School book club spent time with Jean on Tuesday, and had the opportunity to ask her questions about her book Operation Pied Piper.

And Jean was very impressed with the enthusiasm of the pupils.

She said: “I love children anyway but this group are very challenging. They are very erudite, they are very well taught and they are very well informed.

“It’s just wonderful to hear children so interested in books, despite all the technology that we have.”

Pupils at the school are encouraged to get into reading, and the popular lunchtime book club runs once every half term.

The children had read the historic adventure novel as part of the club, which is open to years five and six.
