This story is part of Reading Champion, a series carefully linked to book bands to encourage independent reading skills, developed with Dr Sue Bodman and Glen Franklin of UCL Institute of Education (IOE)

Jake's great granny is quite a person. She has many stories of her exploits during the second World War and is going to give a talk at Jake's school. Can she convince Jake's friend Ryan, that nothing about her or her stories will be boring?

About Ann Bryant

Ann Bryant (Author)
Ann has published well over a hundred books, largely children's fiction, for ages 3 - 12, but also some music resources for primary school teachers. She loves doing school author visits and giving music workshops for teachers, and when she's not working she likes reading, cinema, theatre, cycling, swimming, walking, going to the gym, being with family and friends. She has two daughters and lives with her husband, who does all the cooking - (result!) - in Kent.

Barbara Szepesi Szucs (Illustrator)
Barbara Szepesi Szucs: As children, almost everyone says that they know what they want to be when they grow up. In the beginning, Barb couldn't see clearly what she wanted to be, because drawing meant everything to her. It was a part of her life and her body, like breathing. She came from an artist family, so art was just a totally normal thing.

Barbara used to play classical music and she almost became musician, but at the last moment she chose graphic design, and she said to herself: this will be her way.

Barb studied in an art secondary school, then she applied to MOME (Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design - Budapest, Hungary), where she got her graphic design degree. She worked for the University, where they developed interactive children books for iPads and other tablets. Barb's team won the Hungarian Design Award in Visual Communication category.

Barb lives in a tiny village with her husband and a bunch of cute animals. They both like living in village, they are totally in love with nature and animals.

Others may think an artist's sensitivity is a disadvantage, but she thinks it is a gift and it is the catalyst of her creative work.
