School visit book signing

Below is information on the books that can be ordered as part of a school book signing. Please note these are the prices available for schools booking a signing as part of an author visit, not the general purchase price, which in some cases may be more.

Order forms for parents can be downloaded below. Schools should advise final order numbers around a week before the visit, where possible, so that extra copies can be ordered from the publisher in time, if needed. Please note Valerie will usually try to bring some spare copies of each title just in case.
