Dear Headteacher / Literacy Co-ordinator,

Children’s author, Jack Trelawny, is currently touring the country, giving FREE 40-minute talks at schools about his Kernowland in Erthwurld adventure series (published by Campion Books for children aged 7-11). See www.jacktrelawny.com for details of his next series.

Following our previous correspondence, 26 schools booked for October 2011 and 34 schools booked for November 2011. Jack was kept very busy last Autumn term visiting these schools in Cambridgeshire, Devon, Dorset, East Sussex, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Surrey, and Yorkshire. This month, January 2012, Jack is visiting 22 schools in Essex, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, and West Midlands.

We are currently adding to the author's diary for Spring and Summer Terms 2012, so please respond as soon as possible if you would like a visit this year. The earlier schools respond, the more likely it is we can plan the diary to fit in all those wanting a visit when the author is next in their area, or add their county to the diary plan. There is no problem if Jack has already been to your county recently, he can always visit again if enough schools contact us to book.

We are also planning the diary for next Academic Year 2012-13, so please also respond if you would like to book for the year starting in Autumn Term 2012.

Why book a Jack Trelawny free author visit?

The series has quickly become class reading material in many schools.

The responses from schools have been very enthusiastic:


'The children were spellbound' ‘We were all inspired!’ ‘…books… to get boys reading’ ‘Jack’s show created a brilliant buzz around the school’
‘…many of the children have developed a passion for reading since Jack’s visit’

  • Jack is an experienced children’s presenter.
  • Teachers report that Jack’s visits inspire children to read and write their own stories and his talk addresses many aspects of the curriculum. His Kernowland series is now a top-seller at Waterstone’s.
  • Some schools are calling Kernowland, ‘our getting boys to read book’, although it is equally popular with girls.

Jack has now visited over 800 schools.

  • The lively ‘edutainment’ event involves an interactive Powerpoint slideshow.
  • The children enjoy the slides of the characters in the books and the author talks about gathering ideas and how a story is written.
  • Jack can talk to up to 400 children in one session; at larger schools he can do two talks on the same day.

There is, currently, no fee to the school.

In recognition of the fee waiver, we simply ask that parents are made aware of the author visit in advance in order that the children can purchase a book or books on the signing day for the 'Meet the Author' event should they wish to.

There is currently a '3 FOR 2 OFFER' on books for the school visits which is proving very popular with parents.

To make things as simple and straightforward as possible for the school, we provide a letter that is sent home to parents, which incorporates a tick box order form, in our Author Visit Confirmation Pack.

The books are available online or from your nearest Waterstone’s store and all other good booksellers; they have colour maps and are reasonably priced at £6.99.

Signed copies of the Kernowland books, with a dedication to a child by the author, can be purchased online direct from our website with free delivery.

The stories are now also available as ebooks for Kindle, Ipad, Iphone, PC, etc., and can be downloaded from Amazon.co.uk and other internet retailers such as Tescoebooks.com. The Amazon Kindle books have a free Look Inside! option so you can read the first few chapters.

For more info about Jack Trelawny and his school visits, also see the author’s blog www.jacktrelawny.blogspot.com.

The first two chapters of Book 1 can be printed off for class reading here.

We have just begun quizzing the books. See quizzes here.
