Author Visit- Rachel Greaves


In March we had an Author visit. Rachel Greaves came to school and spoke to us in assembly. She explained how she came to start writing her own books and why she set her stories in and around the Quorn Steam Railway in Leicestershire. She told us one of her stories using her wonderful puppets and props. She had even brought a beautiful model of the steam train which features in her stories. She was a brilliant story teller and had us all spellbound. Her ability to use the puppets was awesome. When she first started her story telling, for a split second, we all thought that Ruffles the dog was real! His tail wagged and his head moved in such a convincing manner.  Afterwards she signed the books the children had bought. It was a memorable visit which we hope inspired the children to read, and look out for more of her books.
