Lynne Featherstone, Lib Dem MP for Hornsey & Wood Green, has shown her enthusiastic support for National Story Telling week by telling a short story to a small group of St. Mary’s Junior School Children.
“As the digital revolution continues relentlessly around us, it’s often forgotten that one of the easiest and cheapest ways of entertaining ourselves is to tell a story.
“Story telling is also such an important way of getting kids into books and reading.
“I read a really ghastly tale of a boy who, to cut a long story short, watched so much television and ate so many crisps he ended up a crisp. And there was no happy ending!
“Thank you very much to the school and I hope the pupils at St. Mary’s enjoyed it as much as I did!”
