Nicholas Allen visited children at The Royal School in Windsor Great Park on Tuesday to read from his new book, The Queen's Knickers, and opened the school's new library.
Pupils dressed up as their favourite literary characters and designed their own knickers and nappies like the queen in the story.
Headteacher Caroline Jones said: "We have been without a library for more than a year and it is down to hard work from the PTA who have kitted it out with new furniture and books.
"The children thoroughly enjoyed their day."
Irish writer Darren Shan went to Charters School, in Charters Road, as part of his nationwide tour, to talk about his new book 'Zom-B', about a teenager who lives in a world of racism, zombies and darkness.
Darren spent the day with the English department and signed pupils for year nine pupils.
Assistant headteacher Darren Hartwell said: "Darren was extremely entertaining and held the year nines' attention completely, especially with the gruesome passages he read from some of his books."
