Best-selling author Guy Bass meets Manor Primary School children

Award-winning and best-selling author Guy Bass came to Manor Primary School in Uckfield yesterday to meet pupils and talk to them about his new Spynosaur series of books.


Manor Primary School children with author Guy Bass and school English leader Sophie Whensley.

Guy’s books include Stitch Head, Spinosaur The Legend of Frog, Dinkin Dings and the Frightening Things. He has won a Blue Peter Award for Most Fun Books with Pictures.

The author has also written plays for both adults and children and previously been a theatre producer and illustrator.

He spoke to the whole school in assembly and then spent time with children in Years 2 to 6.

They had the opportunity to buy a signed copy of one of his books at the special discounted price of £3 instead of the recommended retail price of £5.99, choosing from Spynosaur, Spynosaur v Goldenclaw and Stitch Head.

School English leader Sophie Whensley said part of the reason she had asked Guy to come to the school was that he was known for his charisma and she thought his talk would be engaging for both children and adults.
