A children’s author is hosting a free online event for up to 100 primary schools to celebrate their next adventure to secondary school.
West Yorkshire author Sarah Morrell and Hashtag Press are will be talking about her new book ‘A Head Full Of Magic’ on 16th June 2022.
Sarah swapped criminology for children’s books and since signing with prize-winning independent publishing house Hashtag Press, based in south-east England, she hasn’t looked back!
Released this week, A Head Full of Magic is already getting rave reviews from the fiercest of critics – children – as well as librarians, booksellers, parents and teachers. This middle grade fantasy fiction about the last term of Primary School, is sure to be a big hit with readers aged 8-11, particularly those who enjoy books by J K Rowling and Maz Evans.
“A laugh-out-loud, middle-grade story with a mixed raced protagonist who can talk to animals. A young Dr Dolittle – perfect for children seeking a story bursting with magic!”
Fleur is used to balancing her two different cultures – from her English Mum to her West Indian Nan – but when she discovers that she can talk to animals she finds herself in a whole new world! Can her new powers help her take down Celeste ‘The Best’ the hockey-loving, ankle-smashing new girl, once and for all?
“I read this book in 24 hours, it’s the fastest I’ve ever read a book, and the first book I’ve finished so far this year. I loved Sir Barclay and Fleur’s adventures!” – Macy Lewis, 11 years old, Kent, England
In honour of the last term of Primary School, after a crazy couple of years thanks to Covid for these young students, and to celebrate their next adventure on to Secondary School, Sarah and Hashtag Press are hosting a free online event for up to 100 schools across the country on 16th June 2022.
