What a wonderful day we all had with our visiting author/illustrator! He talked to all the children from Older Nursery up to Year 4, and all were entranced, inspired and enthused by his excellent sessions.
Zevon (Yr 2) summed up the feelings of many of the children: Shoo Rayner came to our school. He read us a story and he made some funny noises. I loved his story. I had so much fun doing Ricky Rocket I forgot I was even at school. I think he was brilliant and I think he should come again some day. He wrote a book called Monster Boy. It looks awesome. I loved it.
