Andy Griffiths' talk

This morning we walked down to Seatoun School to listen to Andy Griffiths talk to us about writing. There were students from other schools there too: Kahurangi School, Scots College, Holy Cross and Seatoun School.

He was really funny!

"I liked where he told how he writes the books and gets ideas. Like when he was talking about the treehouse and the 13th floor and he just wondered about making it bigger and keep going up" - Steph.
He really knew what kids liked and he told us really funny stories about his books" - Nick.
I like how he usually used the opposite of things to make it more interesting for the reader so he does what you least expect"  - Rico.
"I liked that's he really funny and has lots of jokes and has lots of humour, like that joke about the mother throwing the fridge at the kid, and he actually signed all our books" - Raiha.
"He was really silly and hilarious" - Josie.
"I liked the brown blob story... "- Lucas.
"I really liked the spy cow and what could happen to you when you were in the shower. I also liked when he was talking about Terry and Andyland" - Hana.

At the end Andy took the time to sign one book each for anyone who wanted his autograph. Thanks Andy!

When we got back we drew our own treehouses. There were some really creative drawings and ideas of what we would have in our treehouses if we could have anything at all... Later we wrote about what one level of our treehouse would look like.
