Konnie Huq

Whilst Konnie Huq has become a household name for being the longest-serving female presenter on Blue Peter, as well as hosting numerous other TV and radio programmes, she’s recently brought her experience of entertaining the nation’s children into the world of books, writing and illustrating the Cookie! series a comic combination of mad science projects and the ups and downs of 9 year old Cookie in a contemporary Bangladeshi family. Book one launched in August 2019, with the paperback due out in February 2020 and book two will arrive in August 2020!

We are really excited to be working with Konnie this year during the 19/20 academic year – look out for Cookie!-themed Readathon kits! Plus, schools that plan to run Readathon before June 2020 will be entered into a prize draw to win an exclusive visit Konnie who will bring her interactive show to one lucky winning school.
