Danny Wallace Schools Event

Scottish Book Trust brought the brilliant Danny Wallace to Dean Park Primary School in Edinburgh for a very special event!

What would you do if the whole world stopped? Yes the WHOLE WORLD, except YOU? Lick every sweet in the sweet shop? Prank your friends? Steal a puppy? These were just some of the suggestions pupils at Dean Park made when they met Danny Wallace, author of Hamish and the Worldstoppers. 

Hamish and the Worldstoppers is Danny's very first book for children - he’s written lot’s for adults already! - and pupils at Dean Park were luck to be some of the first to hear Danny talk about it. They found out about Hamish, his trusty gang the PDF and thought about what they would do if the whole world stopped.

A hugely entertaining performer, Danny’s event got pupils excited about reading and buzzing with ideas for their own creative writing.  

Check out the brilliant book trailer for Hamish and the Worldstoppers here.
