Appledore Book Festival pt.2

Middle School were amazingly lucky to meet a very funny author called John Townsend who visited our school whilst he was attending the Appledore Book Festival in September.

He showed us many of his interesting factual books and some students recognised them, either from home or school; 'Wow! Exclaimed one student, 'I have that book at home, and you wrote it - that is cool.'

They loved the information John gave them about sharks and spiders. 'Oh, that made me shudder,' said Liam from Barle class when we were shown a magnified picture of a shark.

The students were also very interested in the books that he had written about mythical creatures and were very intrigued about where the ideas for a Kraken came from.
