We were delighted to be selected by the publisher Simon & Schuster for a visit by author A.F. (Annabel) Steadman to promote the paperback edition of her fantasy novel Skandar and the Unicorn Thief.

Set in 2022 the story imagines a time where unicorns are not cute and fluffy but ferocious, magical and powerful, dwelling on an island off Wales. It is 13 year old Skandar’s plan to pass the Hatchery exam and become one of the acclaimed riders in the Chaos Cup. The book will appeal to anyone who enjoys fantasy fiction such as Percy Jackson, Artemis Fowl, etc.

Students were captivated by the presentation and enjoyed creating their own unicorn to compete for the Chaos Cup. The author signed pre-ordered copies of the exclusive paperback edition for students and answered questions. Speaking about writing Annabel encouraged students: ‘You can write a book at any time.’ Skandar and the Unicorn Thief is available to borrow from the Library along with Ghostcloud from the Michael Mann author visit in November.
