Christmas fun in the library

9 December 2009

Right in the middle of a stocktake with  books stacked everywhere, Room 8 piled in to the library today. We blasted the library with Christmas songs, singing Santa's and children creatively making Christmas cards. It was lovely to watch.

Duncan Ball

6 December 2009

Yesterday I was delighted to meet the Australian children's author Duncan Ball. It was a chance meeting and we spoke for awhile on his new book of poetry "My sister has a big black beard". We don't have it here in the library yet but watch this space. In the mean time you can view his website to find out lots of information about Duncan Ball and the different books he has written.

Check out some of his Emily Eyefinger (published by Harpercollins)or Selby books from our library. Emily has a magical finger and Selby is a talking dog. Great books if you want to have a laugh.
