'I love the idea of the 13 objects book series'
Durer's Rhinoceros
I gave a talk and slideshow to the children in KS2 about my Kernowland in Erthwurld books.

In Question Time after the talk, I also told them a little about his new series of stories, Thirteen Things, which is inspired by 13 of the 100 objects in the BBC's 'A History of the World in 100 Objects'. The 13 Objects for children can also be seen if you visit the British Museum in London.

The first story in the new Thirteen Things series will be called, The Emperor's Rhinoceros. I'll be offering free visits to schools to show the children how I took the real object, Durer's Rhinoceros, and turned it into a story. Then teachers will be able to go straight from the talk back to class to look at the BBC website Lesson Plan (one plan for each of the 13 Objects).

The teacher who organised the event wrote to Campion Books with a review of the visit. This helps other schools to know what happens so they can decide if they would like a FREE Jack Trelawny author visit to their school...
I just wanted to say how much the children and staff enjoyed Jack's visit - the children were completely engaged and went away with some great ideas to use in their own writing! (Some teachers too!)
I love the idea of the 13 objects book series - please keep me informed about when Jack is available to give presentations linked to these books. 
Kind regards, Kamaldeep Dhillon


See you next time in the Story House.

Happy writing... and reading!
