Gareth P. Jones Author Visit 
Order Form

We were thrilled to bring the wonderful Gareth P. Jones into school Wednesday 18th May and hope the children all had as great a time as we did! 

We know that after such a visit many children are inspired to read the author's books but may not have been able to get to the after school book signing. For this reason Gareth has agreed to personalise and sign bookplates to go into books that are ordered this week, so it is not too late to get a signed book if you were inspired by the visit.

 

Orders can be made using this form, which will be left up until  26th May. We will then send a list of names to Gareth and fix the bookplates into books as soon as we receive them back. All books will be delivered into school for distribution in the week after half term.
