Rastamouse Creator Michael de Souza Visits St John's

We were delighted to welcome 'Rastamouse' creator and poet Michael de Souza today. Michael held workshops with pupils demonstrating the joy of reading and writing, and entertained us all with a story from his hugely successful 'Rastamouse' books and TV series. The show "follows crime-busting mouse reggae band Da Easy Crew, who split their time between making music and solving mysteries for Da President of Mouseland".

Michael said: "It's a pleasure and a privilege to be here at St John's, especially since three of my nephews went here. It's always great to come and encourage children to write and get pleasure from reading."

Rastamouse himself also had a thank you message for St John's pupils. The crime-fighting reggae rodent said: "This school is an irie school!"
