One of our Year 3 students had a very exciting surprise in her mailbox last week. She had received a letter from one of her favourite authors and someone who is very popular in our library…David Walliams!! The letter had travelled via air mail all the way from England to Melbourne, Australia.
This student wrote to David Walliams on his website. David can’t reply personally to all of his fans, but it was still exciting to receive this letter.
We enjoyed listening to David’s letter and hearing that ‘Billionaire Boy’ is being made into a drama to be shown this Christmas on the BBC. We hope it will be shown here in Australia too as many of us have enjoyed watching ‘Mr Stink’ and ‘Gangsta Granny’.
The other very exciting news for fans of David Walliams who are impatiently waiting for his next book is that his new book called ‘Grandpa’s Great Escape’ is coming out on Thursday,September, 24th
Jack’s Grandpa… wears his slippers to the supermarket, serves up Spam à la Custard for dinner and often doesn’t remember Jack’s name But he can still take to the skies in a speeding Spitfire and save the day… An exquisite portrait of the bond between a small boy and his beloved Grandpa – this book takes readers on an incredible journey with Spitfires over London and Great Escapes through the city in a high octane adventure full of comedy and heart. Illustrated by the award-winning Tony Ross.
