Event description

Description

Hundred-mile-an-hour dogs, seasick pirates and demon vacuum cleaners...where else could these characters spring from but the quirky imagination of Jeremy Strong? He has long written for readers of 6+, gathering several awards on the way. He has also penned two teen novels: the award-winning Stuff, (2005) and Weird(2008).

Jeremy Strong's work is characterised by humour and direct child appeal. His best-selling books have got many young children reading for sheer pleasure, especially boys, and he visits schools and festivals world-wide, encouraging reading, writing, not to mention a lot of laughter.

The Letterbox Club aims to inspire a love of reading and engagement with numeracy in children who are looked-after. Across the UK, over 11,000 children aged 3-13 take part. Each child receives their own colourful parcel of books, maths games, stationery and other high quality materials once every month for sixth months, from May to October.

The Letterbox Club is managed by BookTrust, in partnership with the University of Leicester.

  • This event is for children aged 7-11, accompanied by an adult.
