This page is a tribute to the works of the late Jonny Zucker. I had the pleasure to work with him on publishing a book for my school, Oakington Manor before I took early retirement in 2016. The book, A European Adventure with Year 4 was finally published in July 2016, just months before Jonny passed away.
Jonny was for me a ‘smiley face’ every time we met, usually at the Bett exhibition when I would visit the 2Simple stand, chat to Jonny, crack some silly jokes and then as usual of me, take a selfie with him. Bett, January 2017 was like every Bett Exhibition I had visited over more than a ten year period. As usual I made my way to the 2Simple stand, going for my usual hug from Nigel and Katie and other members of the team who knew me…but no Jonny. I didn’t ask for him because I knew I was bound to see him later at the Bett Awards dinner, later that evening.
I was in for a shock when I arrived at the Bett Awards and found there was no Jonny. It seemed odd to me until I asked again and was eventually told he had passed away. I was in a state of shock, so much so that I sat for a while just digesting the information. I couldn’t believe that Jonny was gone.
I decided to create this page after an ex-colleague suggested I share with other schools the work I did with Jonny.
Below is the first 10 pages taken from the book I published following the project, with Jonny. Please feel free to contact me for more details about our project or if you would like support in attempting a book publishing project in your school.
