We are such lucky children! Today we were treated to a Skype visit from Greg Dobbins, author of The Grumpy Teddy. He read the story to us and then answered some of our interesting questions. There were so many fantastic questions that we simply couldn’t choose the best 10, so we pulled names out of a hat! Thank you to Greg for taking the time to Skype with us. We learnt that his favourite books are Watership Down and the Gruffalo and he told us that you have to read lots of books if you want to become an author like him. He even showed us the final manuscript of his brand new book which isn’t even in the shops yet! We can’t wait to read it when it’s published!
Greg also answered some more of our questions on Twitter.
He said that the illustrator of The Grumpy Teddy would be very impressed by our puppets!
Here is Greg, reading The Grumpy Teddy!
This week we reviewed the book and wrote letters to Greg:
We also learnt about question and exclamation marks and wrote conversations between the Grumpy Teddy and the characters he meets in the story:
