World Book Week 2016 - Holly Webb

Popular children's author Holly Webb visited San Anton School and met with the Grade 4 students.

The children were very excited at the prospect of meeting Ms Webb because many of them were already familiar with her books. Her tales involving animals are among the most sought after books.

Most of Ms Webb's oeuvre, which consists of more than a hundred books, revolves around tales of animals faced with seemingly unsurmountable odds. Animals, and pets in particular, feature a lot in Ms Webb's books. Besides being gripping and entertaining, her books also strive to foster a sense of duty and responsibility towards animals. In fact, some of Ms Webb's stories are inspired by her own pets, or stories that she comes across on the news.

The children loved every second of Ms Webb's visit especially since, during the book signing session, they could speak to her some more and ask her questions.
