Katie & Kevin Tsang
Tuesday, 19th September
Year 4, Year 5, and Year 6
What a fabulous start to our autumn term!
We were delighted to welcome to St. Joseph’s the wonderful authors, Katie and Kevin Tsang, co-authors of the bestselling, ‘Dragon Realm’ books. St. Joseph’s was their first stop on their tour to promote the first book, ‘Dragon Force’, of their latest action-packed series.
Year 4, Year 5, and Year 6 children gathered in the Upper Junior Hall to listen to a fun and interactive talk given by Katie and Kevin. They began by explaining how they worked to produce their books and shared tips on how to be inclusive when working together, building on ideas.
The children were keen to find out about their new story, ‘Dragon Force’, so Katie and Kevin treated them to lively reading from the beginning of the book. It was so quiet in the hall as both teachers and children were mesmerized by the story.
Then there was a fun and interactive moment where the children, helped by the authors, got to create their own dragon. Katie and Kevin explained how they created characters for each of their dragons, giving them each a superpower such as shape-changing or replicating. The children contributed their ideas and together came up with a dragon called Gemma Claus, who had the following features:
Flaming red eyes
Green lightning horns
Glowing green wings
Superpower: able to change size
Oh! And likes hot chocolate!
Finally, the children had an opportunity to ask the authors questions and then get their pre-ordered books signed.
“It was amazing to meet the authors and hear the story. ‘Dragon Force’, is so exciting that I am already on page 200! said Asuadoba in Violet Class.
Thank you to the authors for coming to St. Joseph’s to share their books with us and inspire our children.
Thank you to all who supported this event by purchasing signed copies of the books and to our local bookshop,
