Jack Dash

Congratulations to NHEHS Head of Art, Sophie Plowden on the publication of her new children’s book “Jack Dash and the Magic Feather”. This is the first book in a series to feature Jack, who finds a magic quill pen which makes everything he draws come to life! The only problem is Jack isn’t very good at drawing…(not having had Miss Plowden’s excellent teaching!) and so the scene is set for a series of hilarious adventures.

Girls from the Junior School and their parents celebrated the  launch of the book here at the Senior School with a reading from the author, possibly the longest book signing queue we’ve ever seen and entertainment which included a clown, face painting and balloons plus food, drink and the ever popular mega-sour sweets.
