Paula Green reads ‘The Very Very Very Strange Tail’
I wrote this picture-book story FIVE years ago. I have a whole stack of stories and junior-fiction novels in my cupboard like a stack of preserved peaches waiting to be opened.
So I thought I would get one or two out and video myself reading them.
Then if some of you come up with some illustrations I might post the story on my blog!
y o u c a n :
You can do some illustrations to send me (crayon, pencil, collage, paint)
You can use my title and come up with your own story or poem.
You can come up with a tail I could have (and might) add to my story!
send to email@example.com
please include your name age and name of school
don’t forget to put STRANGE TAIL challenge in subject line so I don’t miss it
don’t put your surname on drawings or paintings or collages (Poetry Box policy)
There is no deadline while we are living in our bubbles! Every Friday I will post some work by children. I will always answer your emails but not straightaway. If I haven’t replied after 3 or 4 days nudge me as I may have missed it.
