Of mermaids and monsters!

We were delighted to welcome St Andrews School into Cullompton Library the other day.

The children listened beautifully to Amy reading from ‘Estella and the Falling Star’, then Susie did some live drawing of…The Dreaded Shadow-Shark!

Amy shared her top secret notes for the Shadow-Shark that she’d written when planning the book.

We then had brilliant fun thinking about what makes a good sea monster. How could it be different from a sea creature in our world? The Shadow-Shark is much bigger in Sapphire Sea than sharks are in real life. It has eyes the size of barrels, teeth the size of lobsters…and a distinctive double-fin.

As a group, we created some fabulous creatures!

The children then had great fun thinking about and creating their own sea monsters.

So thank you to everyone for coming along and sharing our world of magic, mermaid and monsters!
