Young readers in Exmouth have had an inspirational visit from a children’s author.
Chris Bradford stopped off at Exmouth Community College on World Book Day and gave two talks - one to pupils from the college and another to youngsters from local primary schools, speaking to nearly 1000 children in total.
Chris gave dynamic presentations, promoting his Bodyguard series of books by conducting real-life bodyguard training exercises with audience members, and his Young Samurai series with the aid of a Samurai sword.
A spokesman for the college said: “Students and teachers were full of praise for Chris after his presentations.”
The college’s World Book Day celebrations also saw pupils dress up as book characters, with prizes for the best costumes handed out by principal Tony Alexander.
