I had such a great day today at Geelong Grammar Junior School in Toorak, visiting everyone from the adorable Kindies to the fabulous Grade 4s! The littlest ones met my child-eating dragon in The Tale of Chester Choi, while the Grade Ones had fun meeting all the Chinese Zodiac animals in The Tale of Pin Yin Panda. The Grade 4s learned all about How to Write a Riveting Story, and finally the Grade 3s unscrambled limericks, identified haikus and even helped write a rhyming poem in my Introduction to Poetry Workshop! Warm thanks to teacher librarian Fiona O’Rourke for inviting me and looking after me so well, library technician Lyn Pool for taking me out for a delicious lunch, and Harrison who won a Dark Horse book for asking the best, most perspicacious question! I look forward to seeing dozens of Geelong Grammar entries in my Favourite Tree Poem Competition ! See all the details on the Clever Competitions page above!
