On Wednesday 16 February we had a very special guest come and talk to us about her books. Yes, it was an author. Linda is from Scotland and she has written lots of books. Linda writes a lot of stories about a character called Hamish McHaggis. Hamish always wear a hat so nobody knows if Hamish has any ears. Linda talked about some of her books and she even read 2 of her books to us.
One was called "What colour is love?" We found out that the colour of love is EVERY single colour. The other book that we read was called "Hamish McHaggis and the Lost Prince" Hamish's friend Rupert (who was a Hedgehog) thought the Prince was a real prince but the prince in this story was a deer prince.
In all of the Hamish McHaggis stories there is a little creature that is on the front cover of the story. You have to find this creature on each page of the book.
We learnt some words from Scotland.
A bosie is a hug or a cuddle.
Coorie Doon means to snuggle.
At the end of Linda's talk some of the Room 12 children got up and said "Thank you Linda for coming and sharing your writing with us!"
We all enjoyed listening to Linda.
