Hello dear visitor. In May 2005 Val visited St. Hilary's School, Godalming. The Times newspaper published the above picture and headline and said:

"Val Biro the famous children's author roared into St Hilary's School, Godalming in his vintage car Gumdrop featured in his 37 books.

Pupils from Reception, Years 1 and 2 were delighted by Val's presentations which included storytelling, drawing and illustrating workshops. They particularly liked sketching Gumdrop.

Speaking of his visit Val Biro said," This has been a most enjoyable day for both car and driver."

Penny Clark,head of the Lower School said "The children enjoyed the inspirational experience, which has given them a wonderful insight into story writing and Illustrating."
