Chris Powling was at Gearies Junior School, Gants Hill Crescent, on Tuesday to help inspire the children with reading and writing stories. He discussed his inspirations and took questions about his books and life as an author.

Reception team leader, Lucy Seal, said: “Chris Powling was brilliant. He captured the children’s attention and imagination right from the beginning and made it fun and entertaining for them.

I have never seen my class so quiet and attentive for so long.”
