visiting princess frederica

Today I plunged through the swirling snow to Princess Frederica CoE Primary School in Kensal Green, north London, and was met with a warm, enthusiastic welcome!

With the older half of the school, we focused on Pugs of the Frozen North by Philip Reeve and me, and everyone drew a pug - they were excellent pugs! Here are a few examples:
