I LOVE talking about reading, writing funny stories AND of course, my Knobbly Bottom!

As a comedy writer and drama teacher I like to inject humour  into my events and  so my talks include lots of laughter, interaction and possibly a few bum jokes...

I also work with Big Bubble Theatre Company and we  offer a Knobbly Bottom based book talk and drama session. It features Knobbly Bottom's very own beast hunter, Nan Helsing who helps the children create their very own wacky beast!

If you would like a letter for your class from MAGGIE MCKAY aka hero of the Knobbly Bottom books AND an activity pack then press the buttons below!  Please drop me a line if you would like me to personalise the letter to your class. 

Andrea Burrows, deputy head, Lowdham Primary School

"The children absolutely loved hearing from Emily Jane and were inspired to hear her share her writing journey."

Lousie, The Bookcase, Lowdham

"Emily-Jane entertained a hall full of children with her tales of Maggie McKay's reluctant move to the countryside and the vampire sheep roaming through the fields before engaging them in drawing their own fantastic Beasts Of Knobbly Bottom. Great fun and laughter was had by all!"

Wendy, Truman Books, Leeds

Both school groups were on good form with plenty of hands up at the right time and laughing at all the bum jokes. Emily-Jane Clark’s presentation was really well balanced with information about the books, her background and interactive segments for the children to participate in.”
