Comments on Books
Trash: I think it's a very good, interesting and fun book. Once you get into it you won't stop - Thalissa Everybody Jam: A sad story written in a funny way- Tommaso Midnight Zoo: A boring book with no sparks- Simone My Name is Mina: A very interesting and adventurous story – Louise My Sister Lives on a Mantelpiece: A good but sad book- Anne A Monster Calls: A good book with a depressing ending-Simone Small Change for Stuart: A magical and mysterious book. A light, quick read Between Shades of Gray: It’s a fast emotional roller coaster of real life- Nicky

Last Friday, everybody handed in their excellent books or traded with others. During that session we all learned how to navigate our new blog and we set off to take photos of ourselves in front of the Eiffel Tower showing our books! We all sang a few songs on the way back and ended the session on a happy note. Hoping to see you guys next Friday!

Let Battle of the Books Commence.......
Last Friday saw our first meeting with over 30 avid readers taking up the Carnegie challenge in our own 'Battle of the Books' club at ISP. We munched on biscuits whilst choosing from the Carnegie shortlist with everyone excited about getting stuck into a great read. 'My Name is Mina' proved a popular choice as was 'My Sister Lives on the Mantlepiece'. A few students had already read from the shortlist-Hannah D and Iman have read Andy Mulligan's 'Trash' . Hannah D was even lucky enough to have met Andy Mulligan in person as he was a teacher at her former school in Manila! Having had first hand experience of living in Manila, the book has a special significance for her. We look forward also to Ashani giving us her verdict on a previous winner, Neil Gaiman's 'The Graveyard Book' . Plus we've got our next meeting Friday week, given the generous French holidays (Yay!) Looking forward to the low down on the latest reads! TTFN Ms C
