Children from many Doncaster schools loved meeting Mr Gum author Andy Stanton at Stirling Primary School as part of their Doncaster Book Awards year. Andy had his audience in stitches, telling jokes and reading from his hilarious books. Children attended from schools such as Hexthorpe, Saltersgate, Pheasant Bank and Marshland, amongst others. The children gained a lot from the visit, all raving about books and reading, especially Andy's 'unputdownable' comic novels!
The children from Hexthorpe even decided to write to Andy and were delighted to receive a hand-written letter back.
