Author Visit

08/07/2019

Today we had an exciting visit from Adam Baron - a real life author.  Adam has written five novels for adults and two children's novels - Boy Underwater and You Won't Believe This.

You Won't Believe This is a hilarious novel of friendship and family secrets, which shows that people are people, no matter where they're from.  In the story, someone is doing TERRIBLE things to Mrs Martin, Cymbeline Igloo's favourite teacher.  Cymbeline has to find the culprit.  He's also got to help his friend Veronique, whose grandma is ill. One thing is for sure; even the most unexpected people can change your life in wonderful ways. Lots of us got the chance to but copies of Adam's books and we can't wait to start reading them!

Adam talked to us about being an author and shared tips with us for how to take a story we know and change it.  We started with the Three Bears and soon had a Spaghetti eating, trampolining, Spa day loving Not yet Daddy Bear who freaked out at the prospect of having a baby bear.  His life changed dramatically when in fact he and Not yet Mummy Bear didn't have one baby bear but 26!!!  One for each letter of the alphabet. We had great fun helping Adam to create this story, it was super to see our wacky ideas being pieced together to create a twist on a traditional story.

We look forward to using these ideas in our own writing!
