“Tom Palmer is a champion for reluctant readers and works tirelessly to attract children – and particularly boys – to pick up a book” – Marilyn Brocklehurst, Norfolk Children’s Book Centre.

Freckleton School

I am now fully booked with author visits until January 2017.  I am  usually asked to host either my Football Reading Game or my Rugby Reading Game.

I try to bring in issues like Fair Trade, the Arctic  and citizenship into my writing and these can be built into my author visits.

I am proud to support the Premier League Reading Stars scheme and am a validated provider of workshops for the Children’s University.
