Independent Schools Magazine 39
Olympic athlete and now childrenís author, Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill visited Westholme School, Lancashire. Junior School pupils were joined by children from nine other visiting primary schools to listen to Jessica talk about her second book in the Magic Bracelet series, ‘The Enchanted Puppy’.
Jessica was asked whether her three year old son liked her books, to which she replied that he is a little young, but does sit very still whilst she reads to him! She also explained how she has only been writing for a year but loves her new career and is looking forward to writing the next book in the series of seven.
Jessica then signed books for all the children, taking time to talk to them individually and sit for photographs.
