Local author, Huw Powell, paid a visit to St Francis' School last Friday afternoon to share his work with children and how he became a writer. As well as being an author of adventure books for children, Huw is a competent illustrator and was able to talk and draw at the same time.
Year 4 couldn’t praise him enough – here are some of their thoughts:
‘I loved Huw Powell because it was interesting to find out that he had been brought up and still lives in N Somerset near us. You think of authors being American, not living near by.’
‘I like him because he was funny, has good ideas and a good way with words. For example, ‘The lightening ripped across the sky.’
‘We think Huw Powell is a really funny person with good drawing skills. He drew a space pirate as we described what we wanted. She was hairy with three arms and rocket legs, wearing high heels and a dress and standing on a hover board.’
