Harrogate Grammar School attended Battle of the Books at Harrogate Ladies College for the annual competition against the surrounding secondary schools. The evening quiz master was Curtis Jobling the author of the Wereworld series, designer of Bob the Builder and creator of Frankenstein’s Cat . The teams battled against one another over six rounds with Harrogate Grammar School wining one round and the overall winners being King James School. Curtis entertained the audience with his illustrations and stories of how he became involved in animation in particular with Bob the Builder. It was lovely to watch a group of teenagers talking about books and answering questions relating to different genre. The school team made a valiant effort and fun was had by all involved. 

Our team for BATTLE of the BOOKS consisted of Jack Hennighan, Albert Jennings, Will Giddings and Eleanor Watkin all of year 9.
