Whitehouse, Eddie Weaver and Trystan Jones.
I had a perfectly lovely visit to Magdalen College Junior School where just over 100 impeccably behaved, intelligent boys and I discussed codes, the ancient Maya, the 7 wonders of the ancient world, the possibility of the collapse of civilisation and the craft of writing.
I treated the boys to a snippet of a VERY early draft of the book trailer for ICE SHOCK, the sequel to INVISIBLE CITY which is out in March 2009. And then the boys tried to guess the location of the mysterious ruins near Oxford in which Josh Garcia has a dramatic encounter in ICE SHOCK…

And look at the lovely flowers they gave me!
Thanks to Deborah Gordon (school librarian), the staff and to all the boys. I had a great time and really enjoyed meeting you!
