Boys in Years 5 and 6 were treated to a special event on Friday last week. Sydney author Mick Elliott visited the school and was a most entertaining and enthusiastic presenter. Mick is the author of The Turners series, a rollicking tale of Leo Lennox who discovers that he is growing a tail right in the middle of the school library on his 13th birthday. He soon turns into a Komodo dragon and in so doing learns that he is a shape-shifter. The second book, Camp Freakout, is due to be released next week so our boys are privileged to be among its first purchasers and readers.
During the session, Mick shared his love of writing with the audience and gave some very useful tips for how to be good writer, including write about what you love, leave out the boring bits and read, read, read!
After school boys were eagerly beginning to read the book and begin their fantastically comic journey with Leo.
