Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
On Friday 31st May, Junior School welcomed a brand-new children's author to school. I contacted Justin Davies on behalf of the P4 and P5 classes and asked him to come do an author visit at our school. Justin's book made its debut only the day before our visit on Thursday 30th May. It was therefore a real thrill for the children to welcome a brand-new author and hear him read from his first ever book ... HELP! I Smell a Monster. The girls had the opportunity to pre-order a copy of his book in advance, and there were copies of his book for sale on the day at the end of the event.
Justin Davies will be appearing at the Edinburgh International Book Festival in August 2019. We are very grateful to Justin for squeezing in a visit to our school during such a busy week.
Our thanks too, to all our girls for making Justin feel so welcome and taking part during his interactive talk.
