Are you ready to meet Class 4B, THE WORST CLASS IN THE WORLD?! Join Joanna Nadin and Rikin Parekh, creators of the number one best-selling series, as they introduce Stanley Bradshaw, his best friend Manjit Morris and the rest of CLASS 4B, along with their long-suffering teacher Mr Nidgett! Joanna and Rikin will talk about the real-life people and places that inspire them and they’ll give you some tips on where you can get writing and illustration ideas from. In a fun-filled whole-audience activity, Joanna will demonstrate the team work involved in making a book and Rikin will invite everyone to join in with a draw-along. LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUN is ‘LITERALLY’ GUARANTEED in this event!

Joanna Nadin has written more than seventy books including the award-winning Penny Dreadful series, the Flying Fergus series with Sir Chris Hoy, and the Carnegie-nominated Joe All Alone, which is now a BAFTA-winning BBC drama series. She has won the Fantastic Book Award and the Surrey Book Award, has been shortlisted for the Hearst Big Book Awards, the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, a BookTrust Best Book Award and Queen of Teen, and twice-nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal.
