New and upcoming book: Ted Rules the World

Frank is visiting Canon Slade as part of our special Book Week to give a talk to Year 8 pupils during period 4 and Year 7 period 5, on Friday 1st March in the chapel.

He is an amazing author and has written many adventure and funny books. Frank rose to fame and acclaim when he won the prestigious Carnegie Medal in 2004. He won the Guardian Book Prize and many other awards. He also wrote the opening of the 2012 Olympics with his friend Danny Boyle. They have filmed Millions, Framed and a stunning animated film of Sputnik is on the way. His uncanny ability to create belief within the story and astute, amusing and meaningful observation is unrivalled.

More information is available about Frank through his publisher Pan Macmillan or follow Frank on twitter @frankcottrell_b

There will be the opportunity for pupils to meet Frank after the talk to have books signed.
His books will be sold at a special price of £5.00 although they are usually priced around £6.99.

We anticipate that the queues for signing will be long, so advanced ordering will ensure that your child is prepared with their book ready to meet Frank. However, pupils may also bring money to purchase a book on the day and will still have the chance to get it signed.

If you would like to pre-order a book before the event to avoid disappointment please complete the attached form and return with cash or cheque payable to ‘Beyond Books Media Ltd’.

Please do not hesitate to contact the library if you have any questions or require further details.

Yours faithfully

It's one giant leap for all boy-kind in Frank Cottrell Boyce's out-of-this-world story: Cosmic.Liam is too big for his boots. And his football strip. And his school blazer. But being super-sized height-wise has its advantages: he's the only eleven-year-old to ever ride the G-force-defying Cosmic rollercoaster - or to be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. Long-legged Liam makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space. Is Liam the best boy for the job? Sometimes being big isn't all about being a grown-up.Includes bonus material and discussion questions from Frank Cottrell Boyce, and illustrations by Steven Lenton.
