Book week 2017
This year's Book Week theme is Escape to Everywhere. It's about the places a book can take us using our imagination. When we read we visualise the setting, environment the characters are in.....and transport ourselves there with them. If you could escape, where would you go?

During the school holidays I started reading book 4 from the Exploding Endings series, by Tim Harris. Each chapter is a short story (quick read). I found myself laughing aloud, or talking directly to the book......here are some the trailers from the series. During Library we will have a sampler of the creative writing behind this energetic series.
