|The children had all drawn pictures of the book!|
I am scheduled to visit them again to see their work
on Tall Story and I CAN'T WAIT!
Why was it so amazing?
1 The children had actually READ MY BOOK. I cannot tell you how wonderful that is. I wanted to burst into tears. Luckily I manage not to - it would have been VERY embarrassing.
2 What well behaved, thoughtful, engaged children! What amazing questions. Teachers, let me tell you - the children did you proud.
3 I had to walk through Shoreditch to get to the schools. Now just the sound of the word 'Shoreditch' - well, it isn't promising. But as I walked from one school to another, I was totally bowled over.
|I left the house very early in the morning. And this was the view|
from the bus. Not promising.
|As I left the tube station, I saw this building that appeared|
to have paintings hanging on it.
|They were windows reflecting the graffiti across the road!|
|And on my way home, just before I entered the station, I glanced to the left|
and this sign winked at me.
