We were absolutely delighted to welcome Alice Reeves, author of the Truth and Tails series of children’s books, to Inkpots on Monday 6 November.
Alice spent some time with the children of our Southway Junior School Monday group, and it was a really good excuse for cake!
She read one of her stories, we did some follow on activities, and Alice then listened to the story ideas that the children had.
Alice’s mission with her books is to create children’s fiction that eliminates prejudice, encourages acceptance and aids understanding by addressing hard-to-deal-with concepts such as gender, disability, and self-worth through simple, sensitive and beautiful stories featuring loveable characters.
It’s such a treat to have an author like Alice come to visit Inkpots too; the children get to ask all kinds of questions and Alice was fabulous at answering everything that was thrown at her.
Alice, and her illustrator, Phoebe have recently got a publishing contract and all their books will be reissued in 2018. However they are still available via this link: http://www.truthandtails.com/
Please download this factsheet too which gives more information on the books.
