On the road again….

 

 

I had a wonderful morning in Bedford South School the week before last. The grade four students had each written a short book about an animal of their choice, all the way from a squid to a red-eyed tree frog.

The teacher – what a woman! – had arranged a group book launch, with parents and other classes invited. And I was invited, too. Such fun to see everyone’s wonderful writing and drawings, a very creative class. Thank you, grade fours!

 

Another good review for Nix Minus One, this one in the Calgary Herald.

You can find it on Nix’s home page on my website.

 

I’m in Calgary this week, so the timing of the review is great.

Monday, I’m at the Children’s Literary Roundtable, with Kenneth Oppel – very exciting.

On Tuesday we spend the day at bookstores in Calgary and Pixie Hollow, an hour or so south of Calgary.

On Wednesday and Thursday, library readings, with grades four, five, and six.

Home on Friday.

A busy week!

It’s supposed to snow while I’m there. So here – as an antidote – are the crocuses in my garden
