Author Visit ... Choo-Choo!
Last week, authors MG Leonard and Sam Sedgman visited our school for their FIRST EVER joint presentation about the recently published "The Highland Falcon Thief".
We had been busy reading MG Leonard's previously published series of Beetle Boy books so were excited to hear about the new series of mysteries on board trains. Sam and Maya told us about their inspiration and the process of researching and writing this first book in their mystery series. A dramatic reading from Chapter 2 and a demonstration of steam power added to the thrills with the peak of excitement being when we queued to purchase our own copies of the book and have them signed by the authors. Mrs Martin had read to Chapter 13 already so the race was on - who would finish the book first? After promising not to read over the weekend due to her head start, Mrs Martin was not surprised to arrive at school on Monday and find that many of Year 5 and 6 had already finished this exhilarating journey with Hal and Uncle Nat. Well done to those of you still on the adventure; be sure to let Mrs Martin know when you have finished - BUT - no spoilers!
