Book Peter for a storytelling workshop.
Bill Kirtley, headteacher at Byers Green Primary School, said:
"Peter Barron joined us for World Book Day to share one of his Monstrous Morals books with the children.
The books were very funny and engaging and the workshop Peter and his illustrator Paul Wick carried out was great fun. They explored characters and ideas for other monstrous morals.
The children found it inspiring to meet an author and illustrator and especially on World Book Day. Because the theme of the book was funny, it encouraged the children to write in the style of the author and they enthusiastically approached their writing task linked to the workshop."
The girl who wouldn't brush her teeth
There are seven books published in the Monstrous Morals series so far:
The boy who wouldn't wrap up warm
Peter Barron has published 11 books.
He began with four books based on his humorous and ever-popular Dad At Large column on the trials and tribulations of being a father-of-four.
They were followed by the Monstrous Morals series of children's books, aimed at helping parents scare their children out of bad habits.
