An author had his own time travelling experience as he returned to his hometown to tell children about his new book.
Richard Smith, a former pupil at Uphall Primary School in Uphall Road, Ilford, visited Highlands Primary, Highlands Gardens, Ilford, on Friday to sign books for the children.
The Year 5 pupils had been reading his book, Time Trap, as part of a school project and Liz Payne from the school, said: “The children really enjoyed it.”
“All the books were sold; even some year four and six pupils bought it.”
One child in particular, Sean Faria, managed to finish the book in just three days.
