Curtis Jobling is coming to school!

Thursday 6th March is world book day and we have been able to get Curtis Jobling to come into school and work with the children. Here are some more info about Curtis:

Dear Parent/Carer 

Bradshaw CP School are presenting pupils with a fantastic opportunity to meet the author and illustrator Curtis Jobling.

On 6th March Curtis Jobling will be talking at school about his Wereworld series set in the imaginedand highly inventive world of lycanthropes. He will talk about his love of film/books and animation, being the designer of Bob the Builder, and creator of
Frankenstein’s Cat and Raa Raa the Noisy Lion. There will be a ‘werewolves in cinema’ pop quiz, before a gripping chapter reading from one of the novels. The event concludes with a lively question and answer session, plus a book signing
for each of the four novels. 

The first book in the Wereworld series is Rise of the Wolf, which was short-listed for the Waterstone’s Book Prize, 2011:

‘You’re the last of the werewolves son. Don’t fight it…Conquer it.’ When the air is clear, sixteen year-old Drew Ferran can
pick up the scent of a predator. When the moon breaks through the clouds, a terrifying fever grips him. And when a vicious beast invades his home, his flesh tears, his fingers become claws, and Drew transforms …Forced to flee
the family he loves, Drew seeks refuge in the most godforsaken parts of Lyssia. But when he is captured by Lord Bergan’s men, Drew must prove he is not the enemy. Can Drew battle the werecreatures determined to destroy him – and master
the animal within?

Praise for Rise of the Wolf, Rage of Lions, Shadow of the Hawk, Nest of Serpents, Storm of
and War of the Werelords

“An excellent new series” – SFX Magazine

“Superior to Eragon, and pure fun” – The Times

“The most exciting fantasy story I have read for
years, Wereworld had me enthralled from the first page until the very
last, leaving me hungry for the next instalment” –

“Incredibly highly recommended – dramatic
escapes, incredible rescues, huge battles, terrible betrayals, human
sacrifices, and all of it feels perfect!” –

 Curtis will be signing books
afterwards and your child will have the chance to buy signed copies of the SIX
books priced at £7 each. Students should bring cash to pay for the books on the

For more information about Curtis and his books please visit and


Curtis has recently sent me this email too:


Hi Chris

 That all sounds grand, I’d be happy to judge the photo comp.

 As for books, I’ll bring along my own stock of the novels on the day for sale, chum, and then if children haven’t been able to get hold of them they can on the day. I can wait until after school so parents can come in with their children and take a look.
This way I can also bring along copies of my Raa Raa the Noisy Lion board books for younger children. The Wereworld books will be £7 and the Raa Raa books £5. If you can circulate that information amongst the children and teachers that’ll be grand. 

 Very best
