Book Award Day

Today our class went to St Margaret's to see 6 finalists from the NZ Book Awards.
They gave us a description of what the books were about and some read a snippet of the book.
Here are some of the Authors/Illustrators:

Tania Roxborough - She is a children's writer who has written around 25 books.

David Elliot - Is an Award winning Author and Illustrator
who has written and illustrated 7 picture books.

Leonie Agnew - The Impossible Boy
It took 8 years to write this book.

Simon Pollard -  is a successful children’s book author, spider expert and natural history writer.

Jenny Cooper - is an award-winning illustrator of more than 70 children's books.

Des Hunt - Sunken Forest is his book. It is based 60 years ago. It is based on him when he was 13 years. He went to a Summer Camp and Lake Waikaremoana. It is surrounded by bush and has a great walk of NZ.

My favourite author was Des Hunt because I found his description of his book very intriguing and he had a lot of interesting photos about what his book was about.
