FAMED for writing stories about monsters and kids with supernatural powers, Ali Sparkes dropped by a Fareham school as part of its ongoing literacy program.

The award-winning children’s author called in to Neville Lovett School and spoke to Year 7 and 8 students.

Children from Year 6 Redlands Primary also attended the visit.

Mrs Alex Lowe, head of English, said: ‘The pupils really loved it. She inspired them and encouraged them to find their inner talent and pick up a book, whatever their skill level.’

Ali Sparkes signed copies of her books including Monster Makers, Unleashed and The Shapeshifters.

She has won several awards including two Blue Peter awards.
