Highest praise ever from a grade 5 reader: "I would pick the book over candy"
I had a fantastic school visit today in Clarkson, Ontario. A wonderful teacher and her grade 5 students made me feel SO welcome. They had just finished reading my Silver Birch Express nominated book, the Gargoyle at the Gates. First, they made these fantastic gargoyle statues.Then, they gave me pictures of gargoyles they had drawn, along with their thank you notes, which were AWESOME. And as if that weren't enough, they also choreographed the gargoyle shuffle, and 2 different groups danced while I played guitar. Could NOT stop smiling. A great day. Thank you Ms. Walker!
