Looking for Primary School Teachers

I am really pleased with The Boy Who Biked The World, my first book for children. My aim was to wrap education, the inspiration to think big and a curiosity about travel and the world into a fun, adventurous story. (You can read a sample couple of chapters here to judge whether I succeeded).

I’m now looking for primary school teachers anywhere in the world who might be interested in using the Boy Who Biked The World series as a class reading book. In addition to being an enjoyable book it is an ideal entry into many other classroom topics. I can provide bulk copies of the book at a discount price. And as well as personally signing each book I will also be happy to chat to classes worldwide via Skype, or answer questions through email.

If you are a teacher, or know any teachers please would you take a quick look at these sample chapters and then get in touch to discuss ideas. Thank you!

  1. Alastair, I’ve written two teachers with your suggestion. I also wrote a blog post (http://goo.gl/TXPNE) trying to animate my readers with other suggestions of following your adventures.

  2. Al – I can help you with this. How many schools are you looking for? Ollie

  3. Love the idea that you could chat to the class via Skype as well. Certainly would make a change from the dull arse school texts I remember from my time . A friend of mine in Thailand is hoping to put an order in and has discussed it with the school librarian so hopefully that will come through.

  4. Hi Alistair,

    I realise this post is from a couple of years ago but I am a primary school teacher who has just started reading your book with a Book Club of Year 6s. They are really enjoying it and would LOVE to have some questions answered by email or Skype at some point if possible?
    Many thanks,
    Imogen
