Isaac Newton Academy visit

4th January 2016

It was a pleasure to meet the pupils and teachers of the Isaac Newton Academy in Ilford recently. The whole of Year 7 had read Knightley & Son and created a dedicated Knightley art gallery with everything from 3-D models of the settings to paintings and sculptures of the characters. It was as if they'd dipped inside my head and fished out the images. The drawing shown here was particularly uncanny because it depicts Tilly's thoughts and fears, which come to fruition in the third book 3 Of A Kind, which hadn't even been released yet.
