Yours hieroglyphically

I always love to hear from schools who are reading one of my books as a class, and so I was super-excited to receive a huge envelope from Y5 at Shakespeare Primary School in Leeds, who have been reading The Phoenix Code to tie in with their topic on Pharaohs.

The letters are all beautifully written, full of thoughtful comments about the story and interesting questions. The children have also taken the time to add stunning illustrations and themed sign-offs, like Yours in code and Yours hieroglyphically. What a talented bunch they are!


I really appreciate the effort that has gone into all the letters. Thank you also to the Y5 teachers who shared the book with their classes  - and especially Ms Fox, who sent the letters to me. Your enthusiasm for history and reading (and mysteries!) definitely shines through in the children's letters - they are an absolute credit to you!
