Philip Caveney visits JYHS

JYHS Library was delighted to host Philip Caveney who was recently won the 2016 Scottish Children’s Book Awards for his book 'The Piper' (writing under the pseudonym Danny Weston). Philip spoke to all the S1 pupils about his Tom Afflick trilogy - set in a mixture of the present and moments in Edinburgh's history.

Pupils were grossed out by his descriptions of the plague cure administered in Mary King's Close, fascinated by the most dangerous toilet in the world and intrigued by the real rules a pirate lived by.

Pupils also got an exclusive reading from his latest book 'The Calling' (due for release at the end of the month). The exciting story features the statues in Edinburgh coming to life for twenty-four hours. If the bit we heard was anything to go by we can't wait to read it.

Massive thanks to Philip for such an entertaining visit and to Fledgling Press who made it happen.
