Year 4/5 Chatterbooks – Meet the Author


Our Chatterbooks group had some exciting news this week. They found out that they had been selected to take part in an initiative organised by The Reading Agency and Usborne Publishing. All of the children received an exclusive proof copy of Peter Bunzl’s debut novel ‘Cogheart’ which is due to be published on the 1st September. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, they also discovered that Peter would be visiting the school to spend time with the group to talk to them about his book, being an author and answering their questions. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children and we are thrilled to be taking part.

Peter is also a filmmaker and animator and has worked on two BAFTA award winning shows The Secret Show and Yoko Jakamoko Toto. This is his first novel and I was very fortunate to get an early copy of ‘Cogheart’ so I know the children are in for a real treat. This thrilling adventure will really capture their imaginations and take them on an adventure of a lifetime.
