Author Visits Test Valley School

On Monday 22nd May Test Valley School were treated to a visit from author Steve Cole when he introduced his fourth and final title in the explosive YOUNG BOND series of books. Steve’s work includes a broad range of books, sales of which have exceeded three million copies.

He gave our Year 7 & 8 pupils and visiting Year 6 pupils a unique insight into 1930s gadgets and inventions. The event was engaging and interactive as Steve explained how he became such a fan of Ian Fleming’s super-spy adventures. Steve shared the research behind his creation and introduced the new characters in his book. Afterwards, those that had purchased books could get them signed by the man himself and the library were lucky enough to get a signed copy to add to the collection already in stock. Thanks to all staff involved and to P&G Wells Bookshop and Authors Aloud UK who are helping Steve with his tour.

Here are a few pictures and reviews from the morning’s event.
