Jenny Pearson`s books


"Jenny came and gave two talks for us at Durham School. The first was to 6th formers about how to write, how to get started and the processes of getting published. She was enthusiastic and humorous whilst also giving lots of valuable information and advice. The second was to a large group of year 7s. They loved hearing parts of the book, debating the best facts they, and Freddie, knew and asking questions. Jenny is a warm and engaging speaker who the students were listening to even before she threw in Freddo frogs as prizes for the best fact! I can highly recommend Jenny as an excellent person to come and speak to different groups about her own books and getting published in general." Mrs F Swan, Head of English, Durham School

 "Jenny Pearson's World Book Day assembly for our junior children was spellbinding! She held 240 children captive while she regaled them with the inspirations she used in creating her celebrated children's novel 'The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates'. Her enthusiasm for writing was infectious and the children were inspired not only to re-examine the everyday miracles in their own lives but also to turn them in to inspirations for their own stories and characters. Brilliant!" Mrs C Black, Deputy Head, St Margaret's CofE Primary School

"Jenny's events are fantastic and super engaging! They are perfectly pitched for Y5 and Y6 and have the perfect balance between being a lot of fun and being informative and inspiring for children wanting to know more about creative writing." Mariana Mouzinho, Seven Stories
