James is an award/prize-winning children’s poet, non-fiction writer and musician – and the author of many best-selling poetry books. He is D E L I G H T E D to be an Ambassador for NPD as he feels it gives a real focus to actively promoting poetry as a vital, creative and cross-curricular medium in Primary schools. James travels all over the UK and abroad with his melodica (that’s Steve) to give lively poetry/music performances and workshops. In the last twenty years, he has visited over 1400 schools and performed at various prestigious literary festivals, including Cheltenham, Hay and Edinburgh.
