Norfolk’s nine-year-old art prodigy Kieron Williamson is coming to Norwich to sign copies of his new book at Jarrold.

The Ludham Primary School pupil, who has already made hundreds of thousands of pounds selling his work, will be at the department store’s book department on Saturday, July 28.

He will visit Jarrold Cromer, in Church Street, between 10am and midday and then head to Norwich, in London Street, for another session between 2pm and 4pm.

He will be signing copies of his new book, Coming to Light, which chronicles the young artist’s rise to fame and how his parents have dealt with the international attention he has received.

It all started on a family holiday in Cornwall, when the five-year-old Kieron was bought a drawing pad and crayons to fill the time and ended up amazing his parents with his skills.
