Hampstead comedian David Baddiel reads to Highgate pupils

Children got the chance to meet one of their favourite authors when comedian David Baddiel visited a primary school.

The Hampstead comic spoke to pupils from Highgate School and St Michael’s Church of England Primary School in Highgate earlier this month about his latest children’s novel The Parent Agency.

Mr Baddiel, 50, signed copies of the book for pupils at the event at Highgate Junior School after reading from the novel to dozens of eager young listeners.
