Orkney Children & the Monsters

The Branch Eating Monster
Louise and Patsy have let loose a whole wheen of monsters in the library today. Or at least they were on the loose until they pinned them to the wall. 

These were pictures drawn by P1 pupils from Papdale Primary. Louise and Patsy read them stories from the books in the family packs being given to every child in P1 in Scotland as part of Book Week Scotland.

Here they are telling the story of The Day Louis Got Eaten by John Fardell. They also read Jack and the Flumflum Tree by Julia Donaldson and Solomon Crocodile byCatherine Rayner! All three are shortlisted for the Scottish Children's Book Awards. The bairns were spellbound and produced a variety of very scary monsters themselves. 

Here are some more of the monsters below. The children themselves were very very good!


There are more events with children planned for this week. Read the blog to find out.
