City pupils were thrilled when acclaimed author Carrie King popped into assembly.

Denbigh School welcomed the woman behind the Joni-Pip series of books for a signing session and discussion.

Carrie, who lives in Shenley Church End, received a warm welcome from excited students, eager to discover more about the inspiration for Joni-Pip’s journey through time.

Carrie chatted about how she became an author and what motivates her to write.

She also caught up with Year 8 student Joshua Nicholson, who has written a piece in her book, The Life in the Wood – with Joni-Pip, on the character’s catchphrases and analysed the fun use of the author’s language.
