Code-cracking and animal spies as 1000 Fife pupils join virtual book launch

28 April 2021

OnFife Libraries are giving Fife primary schools the chance to take part in a virtual book launch next week.

Almost 1000 pupils in nearly 20 schools will be enjoying a fantastic event to launch the second Animal Spies novel – Mickey and The Trouble with Moles – by Fife-born author Anne Miller on Friday 7 May.

A regular visitor to Tayport Library as a child, Anne now lives in London where she works as a ‘QI Elf’ – a writer and researcher for the BBC programme QI.

Her second novel in the series sees hero Mickey return to the top-secret animal spy ring COBRA. But can he help crack the code? This interactive event will take place virtually, where pupils will learn all about the real life ‘animal spies’ during WW2 and also marvel at Anne’s code-solving skills, before putting their own to the test!

The primary schools signed up to take part so far are: Auchtertool, Balcurvie, Bellyeoman, Ceres, Craigrothie, Dunbog, Falkland, Hill of Beath, Kirkcaldy North, Newburgh, Newport, Pitlessie, St John’s, St Margaret’s, St Ninian’s and Tayport.
