WORLD BOOK DAY WITH
GURU NANAK SIKH PRIMARY SCHOOL
I’m so excited about my visit on World Book Day. I’m going to the Guru Nanak Sikh Primary School in Hayes, Middlesex. I’ll be telling the children how we began to write as a family and where we found the inspiration for our stories from.
I’ll be asking what you find difficult with story writing. I’ll try to find out what it is that makes you want to finish a story, what it is that hooks you into stories as readers. We’ll try to look at ways of doing that with your own writing.
We’ll be doing lots of book talk. I’ll also be talking about the lifecycle of a giant African land snail, what they like to eat, how long they live for and how we take care of them. And if anyone really wants to take a look at what’s inside the little tank that I’ll be bringing with me, get the palms of your hands ready for something a little slimy!
AND FINALLY … SLIME IN TIME
Yes and finally, the fourth snail book is nearly finished and I am starting to work with Amy on her drawings. She’s going to produce some different pictures this time, even if she LOVES drawing faces and body poses. She’ll try her hand at action pictures, pictures with scenery, pictures without. We’re going to have some fun preparing them for you, and getting them ready for print, hopefully with the help of the lovely Henrietta Hellard.
We’re very excited about this book. It has taken a long time to write, even with the inspiration that we found from a book on local history. It should be out in the autumn, maybe in time for Halloween. If you would like to go on our mailing list then please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get a flyer out to you.
Have a wonderful World Book Day on Thursday everyone.
See you soon.
