Book Week Fun
One of my lovely friends, Georgie sent me a photo of her little sister Juliet, who dressed up as Clementine Rose for her school’s book day. Doesn’t she look amazing! I’d love to have more photos of characters from my stories or Clementine’s to add to the blog if you or your friends dressed up this week. Of course please make sure that you have your parents’ permission to send the photo.
My best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey is enjoying her first Book Week as a full time writer. Yesterday she visited Warrawee Public School and had a great day. The highlight was meeting one of the boys who wasn’t very excited by the prospect of hearing about Clemmie’s and my stories at the beginning but by the end he was so excited to be able to read the books. It was wonderful to see him so eager and not at all worried that there are girls on the cover. I don’t know why people fuss about that – there are lots of boys in the stories!
Today Jacqueline’s been with the girls at PLC Prep in Pymble and had a great day talking to the children from Kindergarten to Year 3 as well as doing some writing workshops too. There were some very funny stories about Clementine visiting Hong Kong with her mother and Lavender for a holiday and poor Lavender being chased by a crazy butcher who was sizing her up for his pork dumplings. Luckily Lavender and Clementine outsmarted him in the end.
There are more adventures for the rest of the week so stay tuned.
Hope you all have a fantastic week.
Lots of love,
