Author back at primary

Have your say

A CHILDREN’S author returned to her former primary school to read extracts from her latest book.

Nyssa Pinkerton enthralled pupils at Dirleton Primary School with readings from The Peerie Monster and the Colour Crocodile.

The author introduced the youngsters to the inspiration for the main character in her book – her dog, who is also called Peerie Monster.

Headteacher Sarah Ogden said: “It was fantastic for the children to not only meet an author but to make the connection to the school.”
