THE acclaimed author who penned The Gruffalo and other much loved children’s stories was visiting children in Wirral as part of a UK tour.
Julia Donaldson was due at Bromborough library today (Wednesday) where she was giving a performance based on her work and speaking about the importance of libraries to British children.
Children from 10 Wirral schools were invited to be in the audience.
And pupils from St Andrew’s Primary School in Bebington were scheduled to entertain the world-famous writer with a show.
Ahead of today’s event, Ms Donaldson said: “Libraries are very close to my heart, and so is performance.
“This tour is my way of bringing the two together.”
Julia is the author of more than 150 books and plays for children.
