CHILDREN at St Norbert’s Catholic Primary School in Spalding were treated to a rare insight into the life of a well-known writer of children’s books.

The school’s junior classes met Jack Trelawny, famous for his Kernowland series of books, when he visited on a nationwide tour.

He told them about his life and the inspiration for his books, and dedicated and signed a book to them. They enjoyed a workshop in which they made up stories about just a few of Jack’s animal creations, like apechicks and dogbears.
