Author Luke Temple showed children at London Meed School teasers about his new series of books. He also gave children some brilliant ideas about where to look for inspiration for writing.

Luke explained that to get ideas, sometimes he looks at a blank wall, and sometimes he has dreams he can use. He makes reader want to read more because his stories are exciting, he always ends chapters and sometimes whole books with cliff-hangers to keep the reader wanting more.

“Luke told the children he came to London Meed through a magic portal, he span around and magically popped out from behind our hall curtains,” said Candida Reece, head teacher. “He is a hugely entertaining, but also very inspiring for our young writers.”

Chloe O’Connor said: “Our teacher told us he was late and all the teachers looked worried, then really pleased when he came out.”

Harry Goacher said: “Luke picked children to come and act parts of his story, somebody had to be a toilet roll holder!”

Amira Nahar’s best part was when the three main characters had to act out stealing a hat from head teacher.

Max Cooper said: “The characters were going to try to find the treasure to share amongst their friends.”
