Autumn is truly upon us and there is a definite chill in the air. This October the Scottish Book Trust School Events Team took bestselling author and illustrator Ed Vere to West Dunbartonshire, East Dunbartonshire and North Ayrshire for an exciting week of schools events! His interactive storytelling and draw-along sessions delighted and entertained the P1-3’s we met!
