Michael Salmon Author Visit

On the 10/9/2018 we had Michel Salmon, a children’s author and illustrator come to our school. He drew cartoons and told us some amazing stories about ‘Bobo the Super Dog’. He also drew a picture of some students and then got a student to draw him, it was very funny! Michael also sold some books at the end of his session and the most popular book was ‘Bobo the Super Dog’. I had lots of fun!
