BOOK worms at Kinver primary school were treated to a visit by award-winning children’s author Elen Cauldecott before lessons stopped for summer.

The Bristol based author of How Ali Ferguson Saved Houdini and Operation Eiffel Tower stopped off at Brindley Heath Junior School where she shared storywriting tips and read out excerpts from her popular adventure books.

Year six teacher Alison Edwards said: “The day was a great success.”

Elen’s latest offering The Mystery of Wickworth Manor, released this month, is a ghostly tale about two children who discover a mysterious hidden painting while on a school trip.
