The author that brought you the YOU CHOOSE series, talks about his upcoming books and more!
We wrapped up Term 2 with some very interesting author studies. Stage 3 discovered the mystery of Lemony Snickets, creating some fantastic posters (see below), and why some authors use a pseudonym (pen name). Stage 2 explored the quirky style of Shaun Tan of The Lost Thing. Also known for his 2014 Picture Book of the Year win- Rules of Summer. Stage 1 were all laughs with stories of the naughty Penguin and adorable Piggie and Elephant by Mo Willems. Kindergarten fell in love with Ian Falconer's 'Olivia'. Known for his many picture books of the adventurous young pig, and entertaining television series. We also learnt how to draw Olivia with her famous red and white outfits (see below).
A lot of activity in the Library so far for Term 3! Recently Stage 2 and 3 began looking at this years selection for 2015 Picture Book of the Year. We began with Glenda Millard's The Duck and the Darklings. Before reading the book we focused on a section of the text and had to work out the sequence, then interpret the authors meaning. Not an easy task when you haven't even read the story yet.
