SOUTH Yorkshire author Gail Jones teamed up with the Big Blue Bookstart Bear to celebrate a reading scheme for children.

Gail visited Wickersley Library to support a drive to get more parents to read books with their youngsters.

The Mexborough author, known for her Family Secrets and Family Fear books, said she was delighted to sign the Bookstart 20 Pledge — an initiative organised to celebrate 20 years of the national reading scheme which sees adults promise to share 20 books with children over the next year.
