Sam Silver Undercover Pirate - BBC Teach

We are a writing partnership who have written children’s books for nursery, reception, KS1 and KS2. 

We were already friends when we discovered that we both wanted to write for children and that it was much more fun to do it together. In between the cups of tea and gossip we have managed to produce over 190 stories, including some poems and a play.

Our books are wide-ranging and include stories about a world of living dinosaurs, ghosts, football, ghosts playing football, a Tudor girl detective, pirates and pets from space! And now our new series - Spy Master. We also write for Oxford Reading Tree and Project X.

One of the best moments in our career was when we got a letter from a teacher telling us about a boy who struggled with his reading. He had been so determined to read 'Ghost Goalie' that he'd now been taken off his statement. 

Sessions include:

          ~ Pirates

          ~ Pets From Space

          ~ Tudors

          ~ story readings

          ~ question and answer

We will do class or year sessions and assemblies for separate key stages. Happy to go into nursery classes. Love visiting libraries.

Our fee is as recommended by the Society of Authors: £400 a day - or £290 for half a day - plus travel and a school dinner!  For distant venues we also charge for overnight expenses but try to keep these as low as possible.

 

 We love hearing from our readers. Children can write to us c/o Jessica Hare,The Agency, 24 Pottery Lane, London W11 4LZ
