Everyone gets in on the act
The year 7 book group have read the opening chapters of Rowan the Strange and like it more than us. (We got sent some extract booklets). You can see their reviews on our page too!

Yay! (as Eve would say). The shortlist is out!
At book group this week we found out the shortlist for 2010 and had a think about if we'd read anything by those authors before. We ate chocolate and discussed the point of celery. We got given copies of our first read - Rowan the Strange. It's written by the sister of one of our teachers! There's no time for slacking, or sneaking off to play tennis! 8 books in 9 weeks!

We've started!
We had our first proper bookgroup meeting. Ms Swinyard learnt good English phrases like what 'muppetry' means, we ate cake, and we discussed our first reads - Creature of the Night (Compelling), Cosmic (Odd), Airman (Sedgehammer-themed) and Bog Child (Genius).
