Author discusses time-travelling tale

THE ILFORD RECORDER


By Shaun Guntrip

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, 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.

Richard gave Sean the thumbs-up in an email. He said: “Finishing the book in three days is impressive.”

The story involves two boys who get transported back to London in 1862 and features a hidden code to crack that leads you on a trail through the capital’s streets.
