M. G. Leonard visits Forest’s Preparatory School

M. G. Leonard visited the School to talk to pupils about her new novel, ‘Beetle Boy’, which has recently been named Waterstones’ children’s book of the month.

During the presentation, M. G. Leonard entertained the pupils with engrossing facts about the myriad of different beetles that inspired her book, revealing the journey from fear to fascination with the bugs.

Preparatory School Librarian, Mrs Kendall, said: “M. G. Leonard was marvellously informative and entertaining, it was a magical morning for everyone.”

‘Beetle Boy’ is the first part in a planned Beetle trilogy and has been published across the world.
