Congratulations to the talented young writers in Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4) at the Preparatory School!
Their collaborative work - Realms Collide - has been published and officially launched by popular children's author Tim Harris (Mr Bambuckle's Remarkables, Exploding Endings) and our Stage 2 teacher, Mr. Andrew Phillips.
Mr. Phillips, who illustrated the novel, mentored the students throughout the creative process and, during the launch, each of the students narrated a passage from their chapters to an appreciative audience, before their book signing session.
The 148-page novel is the fourth publication produced by Mr. Phillips, and follows on from the hugely successful Bronze Shell trilogy, written over several years by successive students in his classes.
Whilst this book does have an ending, the students have 'left the door' open for a sequel!
