The author of Max’s Magical Dream, Gillian Overitt, visited pupils at Westfield Primary Academy in Haverhill to raise the awareness of reading for enjoyment.

During Tuesday’s (November 24) visit pupils heard extracts from the book, took part in reading workshops with the author and bought their own signed copy of the book.

Nicky Tyler, head of school said: “This has been a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to share their enjoyment of reading whilst finding out what it is like to be a children’s author.”
