We were delighted to welcome back the children’s author Peter J Murray to Northfield on  Monday 4th April.  Pete is the author of the popular Mokee Joe fantasy series and the chilling Bonebreaker trilogy. Peter brings his spooky stories to life by using realistic settings and basing them on historical facts, he is always a popular visitor to Northfield. Pete gave a lively talk to all Year 7 pupils about his life and how he created his Mokkee Joe books – pupils engaged with his friendly manor and loved his dramatic readings. 

On Tuesday Pete returned to Northfield, where there was a huge buzz in the Year 7 school as pupils lined up to have books signed by him, some even came with a ‘space bun’ hair style inspired by Molly – one of the characters from his books.
