Giant world record attempt at St James's School

On Thursday 5th December, the children of St James's School, Audlem will be taking part in a Guinness World Records® Record Attempt, for the most authors signing the same book simultaneously.

The record attempt is to promote sales of the children's gripping story "Who Ate My Roof?", featuring James the red-headed, pink pyjama wearing football fan and his arch enemy stinky Bob "big bottom"

A record breaking copy of the book will be sent as a gift from the children to His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, who was born on the day "Who Ate My Roof?" was first published.

As this is a proper book signing, signed copies will be available to purchase from our special book stand at school from 1.45pm on Thursday 5th December. Books are priced £6.00 with all proceeds going to St James's Church, Raise the Roof.

Please come along and support the children on the day. The book would make an excellent Christmas gift for the children in your life, especially those that like stories about bad smells and houses made of cake!
