Authors board the Pirate Ship at King's Lynn School

Students at Howard Junior School in Gaywood got a treat last Thursday as best selling authors Helen Baugh and Ben Mantle visited their Inspire-Suite classroom.

Helen, author of numerous children’s books including The Witch with an Itch, tweeted her thanks later: “HUGE thanks to HJS for all the piratey love shared with me”. Ben, an author and illustrator of children’s books, seemed similarly impressed with Howard Junior School.
