Liverpool author teams up with Children's University for latest book launch

A Liverpool writer has teamed up with Sefton Children's University to help launch her latest book and inspire a passion for reading and writing among young people. Bestselling children's author and storyteller Jude Lennon will officially launch her new picture book Pirate Lamby and his Woolly Crew at Write Blend bookshop, in Waterloo, on 19 September 2017, at 4pm. In partnership with the Children's University, the event has been Validated as a Learning Destination giving youngsters the opportunity to participate in learning activities outside of School.  The former Primary School teacher turned business owner will give a special reading of the book, which follows the adventures of Pirate Lamby, and will be encouraging children to write a book review to earn passport credits as part of their learning journey with the Children's University. The book launch also coincides with:- 'Talk Like A Pirate Day' so youngsters are encouraged to dress up in their favourite pirate costumes. Pirate Lamby is the 3rd book in 'The Lamby' series to be published by Miss Lennon and follows Astronaut Lamby and Floga with Flossie, which was released earlier this year and reached number 2 in the Amazon Bestseller charts just 2 days after being released.

Prior to the official launch Miss Lennon, owner of 'Little Lamb Tales,' is busy touring venues across the City introducing children to her books. She said:- "Pirate Lamby is already proving a hit with youngsters and I can't wait for the official launch in September. It's fantastic to have once again teamed up with Sefton Children's University for the book launch and I'm looking forward to working with children on their book reviews so they can earn some extra passport credits. A big part of the national curriculum focuses on pupils understanding and comprehension and writing a book review is a great way for youngsters to stop and think about the book they have read, the key messages, what they liked or didn't like about it and whether or not they would recommend it to friends. It's such a fun way to learn and really inspires a passion for reading and writing."

Laura Grigsby, Sefton Children's University manager, praised Miss Lennon's work and welcomed the event as a further learning opportunity for youngsters. She said:- "It is great to have Jude Lennon and her book launch events as a Learning Destination for Sefton Children's University. She has been a great ambassador for CU over the years including being a guest speaker at our Graduation Ceremonies. Don't forget to complete a book review to get your Passport to Learning stamped if you attend the book launch. Enjoy reading Pirate Lamby too!"

Prior to the launch at Write Blend, Miss Lennon will be giving an exclusive reading of 'Pirate Lamby' and his Woolly Crew to pupils, at Norman Pannell Primary School, after they won a competition. Then, on 27 September 2017, Miss Lennon will do an exclusive reading on the Wirral, at Concept Corner, which recently opened in Wallasey.
