John Dougherty

Dougherty is a Northern Irish children's writer, born in the town of Larne in 1964. He worked as a primary school teacher in London during the 1990s and early 2000s, and during this period began to write stories for children. His first book was published in 2004 and he left teaching the same year to concentrate on his writing career.

John will be celebrating his fantastic series Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face and I suspect he will bringing along his trusty guitar. John will also be introducing his new poetry book.

Dinosaurs and Dinnerladies

There once was an enormous lion
Whose name was Miserable Ryan,
A beast both furious and wild,
Whose favourite food of all was – child!

What’s the REAL reason the dinosaurs died out? Can anyone rescue Class 3 from the wild dinner-ladies? And what will happen when Class 2M meet a lion?

Do not miss this hilarious event!
