This week the Page Turners met and discussed their thoughts on the manuscript that they are proofreading, Going Batty by John Agard.
Cezara, Isha and Zelan think it is a good read so far and have given it a rating of 7 1/2 out of 10 although this may change by the time they finish the book.
Coni and Abi were delighted to find a mistake today, one of the chapter’s was named differently on the contents page to that of start of the chapter.
I wonder if anyone will find anymore mistakes……
Check out the Page Turners Display Board next to the library.
This will be added to over the next few weeks as they continue editing John Agard’s book, Going Batty.
Have you ever wanted to be an editor?
Well, the Page Turners are trying the job out this term. They are proof reading a manuscript of a book, Going Batty by John Agard, which will be eventually published. The scheme that they are taking part in is called Young Editors. The Page Turners have been given the job of reading the manuscript, correcting any spelling mistakes, making comments, suggesting where to insert a picture (can submit artwork) and score each chapter and then the book as a whole out of 10.
Fancy having a go yourself? Come along, we meet in the Library on Thursdays at 12pm.
We are Isha, Cezara, Abi, Isobel and Mya.
