ROBERT MUCHAMORE'S VISITS FORTISMERE
Robert Muchamore’s Cherub books are amongst the most borrowed in Fortismere’s library. Many of our students have grown up with the hero James Adams and are still reading Cherub into Years 10 and 11. Robert has done wonders with getting reluctant readers into a series with his exciting, page-turning adventures; from there we can point them in the direction of other brilliant stories and – lo and behold – they are reading because they want to and not as a chore! We were delighted to introduce Robert to 270 buzzing Year 9 students on Friday, He talked to them about everything from the Killer T Virus to Hobnobs and Rolexes! Although they may not all have approved of his football club of choice, his frank answers to the intelligent and often hilarious questions they asked kept them all enthralled.
