Cuckoo Song is amazing!
Beware the scissors!

First impressions
We thought it was about time we contributed to our BLOG so we want to say this ... We were thinking that in our reviews we sometimes write that 'this is a winner' but realise, after reading another book, we might prefer that one to win. As there is no area on our page to do this, we are using the BLOG section to air our views at the moment. (Of course, this will most probably change at our next meeting!) So, how many of us have changed our minds? Well, so far, Verity is hovering between Buffalo Soldier and Cuckoo Song - her original favourite was Cuckoo Song and then she read Buffalo Soldier and is now torn on her final choice! Meanwhile, Gavin is in despair of his sister! But, that does not really fit into the grand scheme of things, as Gavin is not entitled to an opinion (according to Verity) AND Matthew!!!

Omm, nom, nom, nom, nom - chocolate and books!
We enjoyed all of the above at our Launch Party today, Monday 23rd March, 2015. We thought that one of the Carnegie books contained as much swearing as the 'You Tube Comments Section'. That aside, on with the arguing on which way a Kit-Kat should be broken and eaten. (Miss prefers to chew all the chocolate away and then eat the wafter - Matthew, too!) Gavin snaps it perpendicular to the way it was constructed to be eaten. But, enough of the chocolate - we are ready to get stuck into reading, reading and more reading .....debating, debating and large amount of arguing .... AND chocolate!

Feeling bloated ...
We have just had our end of Shadowing 'Ice Cream Tea Party'. Too much chocolate cake - enjoyed the Capri Sun, miss! We enjoyed our awards and the closing remarks from delegates are as follows: Justin, who was awarded the accolade of 'Most Irritating Shadower', says "I will uphold my image! Gavin, the 'Most Sensible Shadower', says "My feud with Justin will continue!" Akari, the 'Most Charming Shadower', says .... (she's too shy to comment)!

Greenaway latest ...
Greenaway Shadowing is great fun not only because of the hilarious characters and wonderful illustrations but mainly because we read these books together during our sessions. Everyone takes a turn in reading one title aloud to everyone each week. Go Greenaway!!!

A non-member helped spam our Poll today, whilst munching on our chocolate biscuits!

Pompous pigs capture wolf!
Justin read aloud to us today from 'Wolf won't bite'. Poor wolf was subjected to degradation and ridicule by pious pig, prancing pig and athletic pig! In the end, the wolf had his revenge when all three said pigs' heads were firmly wedged between his teeth! Up wolfkind!

We are eating into our budget (literally)
Nom, nom, nom, nom, nom ... We had a fun student teacher join us today and we talked about what kind of books we liked. She has promised to provide us with the biscuits next week! Hey ho, budget temporarily reprieved!!!!!

Monday, 16th April 2012 - our first meeting!
Our first meeting will be held after school on Monday 16th April - refreshed from the Easter Break! We shall be finding our way around the ckg website and munching on our first 'Literary Tea' (we hope, with chocolate biscuits) and will be discussing the books we are reading from the shortlist. We desperately need a new name for our group - hopefully, Mrs. Carter will hold a competition for us and give a prize to the person who comes up with the best name!!! Watch this space ...

We are ready for the off ...
We have been told that the Greenaway sessions during our meetings will be such fun - I think we have to read aloud to each other from the books in turn as well as fitting in discussing the Carnegie books that we are enjoying the most. It all sounds rather exciting!
