There was great excitement at school today as we welcomed the amazing Andy Seed- also affectionately known by our children as the ‘Poo Man’. Delighted that we managed to be the first school to respond to his tweet (well done @JustAboutBooks ), we were chosen to help Andy celebrate the launch of his new book, ‘The Clue is in the Poo and Other Stuff too’.
Andy explained how he had been approached about writing this book and had carefully investigated what else might be published on the subject before tackling it himself. the, with the help of his local library, he set about researching the fascinating world of being a nature detective.
All the children- and adults- loved finding out about his new book- particularly the parts about poo and the ‘Poodunnit?’ quiz! Full of fascinating facts and cheeky illustrations, ‘The Clue is in the Poo’ captivated the audience and got everyone talking.
Andy patiently signed so many copies of his books, being lovely with each child. There were so many enthusiastic and positive quotes from around the school and so many delighted children proudly clutching books. One of our not-so-enthusiastic-readers claimed that he wanted to read this book for ever! Several children have asked if they can be the first to borrow it from the library and staff have been stopping me all day to tell me how much they enjoyed listening to Andy and what a lovely way he has with children.
Thank you so much, Andy, for coming to speak to us today and sharing your enthusiasm for writing! Happy book birthday!
