Mokee Joe author visits OMS

Last week we were lucky enough to be joined again in school by successful children’s author, Peter J Murray. Just like his last visit, pupils were enraptured throughout the presentation as he took us on a journey through his Mokee Joe series of books, explaining where the inspiration for the character came from as well as delighting us with some spooky insights as to what happens in each book (without giving too much away!) Year 4 pupils from Ovingham First School even came and joined in on the fun with Year 5 on Tuesday whilst Year 6 and Year 7 were entertained on Wednesday. Pete then returned on Friday to do what can only be described as a mammoth book signing as hundreds of pupils queued to buy a Mokee Joe book – and getting it signed by the man himself. Another brilliant celebration of reading by a brilliant author. Here’s to his next visit!
