Around 380 pupils from three Norwich schools have been visited by comic children's author Jeremy Strong.
Avenue Junior School hosted pupils from Recreation Road Infant School and Colman Junior School for the visit on Friday afternoon.
The author is currently touring to promote his new book, My Brother's Famous Bottom Gets Crowned, which he read to the pupils yesterday.
The event was organised in conjunction with the Norwich Waterstone's book store, in Castle Street, by Avenue Junior's librarian Rosie Riddell, who said: 'It was brilliant, the kids absolutely loved it.
'Our year three pupils have been reading one of Jeremy's books, There's a Pharaoh in Our Bath, because they have been learning about ancient Egypt.

After the reading the author signed copies of his book, with the copies on sale from Waterstone's on the day selling out.

Ms Riddell continued: 'The kids asked him lots of questions, like who his inspiration was, who his favourite author is and which is his favourite book.
'But he has written 99 books in his career so he said he didn't have a favourite because he couldn't pick one.
'To have written 99 books is quite amazing really and the kids really enjoyed his visit.'
