At today’s meeting the Page Turners decided that the next author that they are going to read is Enid Blyton. Charlotte and Harneeka are big fans and have read numerous books. Some of the Page Turners had read a book/s or had heard of Enid Blyton while a few had never heard of her before!
Over the next month or so until the group start shadowing the Kate Greenaway Medal we will be reading Enid Blyton books, reviewing and discussing them.
Today Page Turners had a new member Coni.
We have decided that we are going to ‘shadow’ the Kate Greenaway Awards this year.
