I have to say that the kids were brilliant, so smart and a lot better behaved than I was at their age, or even now! After reading If I Were a Blue Kangaroo and At the Night Safari, I discussed what you need to write a story: characters, setting, and plot, while Soefara talked about how she transforms the words of a story into pictures.
on a very sticky moon.

The K2 Kangaroos had a different idea of who Ferjerbert was. They said that he was a 100-year-old boy with a space alien head and a dinosaur tail who loved eating curry rice ice cream. Yum! He crashed landed on the moon after the rockets on his space ship fell off!
Then two kids from Bandicoot shared their stories about Ferjerbert. Some kids said the moon was sticky because it was made of caramel. I thought this was brilliant! One of the kids, Nico, said that when Ferjerbert and Flubber got stuck on the sticky moon, Ferjerbert tickled Flubber until Flubber burst into tears of laughter and the tears washed away the stickiness! Genius!
At the end of the session we handed out stickers to everyone and the two kids who shared their stories received limited edition paper dolls from our latest book, A Day with the Duchess. Thank you to the kids and teachers of EtonHouse for a wonderful morning! Let's do it again!
