Harby Primary School has had a special visit from author and illustrator Steve Antony.
The treat was part of a prize won by Year 1 pupils who, when in reception class, entered a picture book competition. Their story, How The Zebra Got Its Stripes, was judged to be the winner of the young creator category and also the overall winner.
The class won 10 picture books for the school library, 50 printed copies of their story and a visit from an author.
Steve, author and illustrator of The Queen’s Hat and Betty Goes Bananas, spent the day in school, leading an assembly, holding question and answer sessions and running workshops. Pupils received signed copies of his books and they, in turn, presented him with a copy of their book, signed.
Headteacher Bridget Bye said: “It was a most enjoyable day and we all learned a lot from his visit – it was very inspirational.”
