Nanny Piggins author R A Spratt in Christchurch

What a fantastic weekend I had at the Storylines  Festival. There were just so many children’s book authors and illustrators talking and sharing their ideas about writing.

For the many of you who read the Nanny Piggins series you will be so pleased to know  that I met the wonderful and very funny author Rachel Spratt.  Rachel very kindly gave us a signed  poster for school.

She wrote “To Fendalton School, study hard and eat lots of cake”.  I agree entirely with what she said!

Rachel loves to create villains based on old teachers and librarians from her past. Hmmmm!  Perhaps that might give you ideas for your own writing. Teachers you may want to hide!
