Wow! What a day we had at school today. Not only did we all get to get dressed up in our favourite bookish costumes but we had a very special visit from UK author and illustrator Liz Pichon. Liz is famous for her wonderfully funny Tom Gates books.
Liz was on her way to another school for her only talk in Christchurch but we were incredibly lucky to have her stop by on her way from the airport to her talk. Our Kapa Haka team gave her a very animated welcome. They are, as always, a wonder to watch.
Liz took time to sign books for some of her Tom Gates fans. It was a very special opportunity for these children and such a brilliant thing to happen during our book week. A special thanks to Scholastic for making this happen.

We all fell in love with her shoes. They are awesome.
