It was lovely to see some of our Fendalton children queuing up to meet the famous Australian author Andy Griffiths when he was at The Original Children’s Bookshop on Saturday.
I was there too, working, but thoroughly enjoying the atmosphere. The queue was out the door and around the corner but no one seemed to mind. His books are so popular and even with multiple copies of his books they are always out and issued to eager readers. It was awesome to see that he loves his readers too as you can by the smile on his face. His one hour turned into two so we were very lucky. Andy told us that in Australia sometimes the queue is five hours long. That is incredible.
Check out Miya, Arnika and Abbie with their Andy Griffiths books. Check out his site if you want to know more about him and his writing. Andy shares some great tips about writing and getting his ideas. So if his words inspire you and you feel like writing a story of you own over the holidays I would love to see them when you have finished. Or if you are real keen you can use your google docs account and share them with me so I can read them over the holidays.
I hope you are all still having fun. See you next term.
