Together with a somewhat prickly, yet also cute little visitor, children’s author Victoria Brockspent some time at a pre-school in Haverhill.
The Bury St Edmunds-based writer visited Puddlebrook Daycare in Norton Road last week to read her books to the children.
Two of her books are about hedgehogs (Harriet the Hedgehog and Harrison the Hedgehog) and one of the staff has a pet hedgehog so he was also taken along to listen to Victoria.
Nicola Batterbee, from the pre-school, said: “The children were really well behaved, they sat nicely and listened to Victoria reading her books then we talked about the hedgehog and touched his spines carefully.”
Victoria’s other works include Olly the Octopus and she has two other books that will be available soon , Bella and Barney the Badgers and Simon the Snake.
