Fergal is Fuming

Kudos to Robert Sterling, a local teacher, whose brilliant book ‘Fergal is Fuming’ has been shortlisted for the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize 2018. Robert works at Bure Valley School in Aylsham and his book tells the story of a dragon with a short fuse.
We love BVS, indeed some of TPW’s hard working staffers have relatives there, so we wondered where he got his inspiration? Do the clever strategies Fergal’s friends develop to keep him calm (so he doesn’t set fire to anything) reflect the tactics modern schools have to employ to keep the occasionally over-excited student under control? Whatever, we wish Robert the very best of luck!
