Here at The Little Potato Press we believe in the magic of reading, the power of friendship and being the best you can be.

We love sharing our books with little readers and we offer author visits to local primary schools.

 A 3-hour author visit costs £200* and includes:


  • 40 books (a choice of 2 stories – additional books can be purchased if pre-arranged)

  • A reading of one of the stories – with plenty of actions!

  • Discussions and activities on a particular theme such as friendship, kindness, and special talents etc.

  • Additional resources for related activities such as crafts, puzzles, games etc.

  • Bookmarks for all children taking part


*We will donate 10% of the fee to local charities, HUG A MUG in Maryport and Hospice at Home West Cumbria.


Sessions are ideal for pupils from Pre School and Reception, up to and including Y2 (EYFS and KS1). There is usually time for workshops with up to 3 year groups.


Our aims are:

·    to promote reading and a love of books             

·    inspire children to dream big and be the best they can be

·    encourage empathy


Dates can be arranged to fit around your calendars but are subject to availability. We will do our best to accommodate requests. If you would like to book a visit, please contact us on
