Pete and Simon with Amber, Elisha, Ellie, Maya and at Wooton Primary.

To round off our academic year, Kath and I (and Simon) are at our favourite place…the Isle of Wight. We absolutely love it here! Three ‘Isle of Wight pearls’ to work in – Wooton Primary, Arreton St George and Broadlea Primary…followed by a complete week’s rest on this fab isle.

Ann Moran welcomed us back to Wooton Primary; I think it’s our third visit here…maybe even four! The presentation went down a treat as we presented our latest Mokee Joe book and talked about our collection of stories from across the pond, PS 13.  Afterwards, we signed loads of books and five great gals interviewed us for the school magazine…see pic. Can’t wait to read what they wrote about me…it had better be good or I’ll send Mokee Joe around to sort them out!

Arreton St George Primary followed and this school has a special connection for me. As a child we stayed on the island at the nearby Stickworth Hall, a spooky old hotel, but now  converted to flats. We had fab holidays there. The school is also near to our current island hideaway, but I’m not saying where or it would cease to be a hideaway! The Mokee Joe presentation went down well, despite the school projector being awkward during the second half of the proceedings. The Year 2’s were invited along and they sat riveted to the show and seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves…well done to them!  Thank you to Mrs McInnes for looking after us so well. The book-signing the next day exceeded all expectations for such a small school and we ran out of books! A real credit to the school’s interest in books and literacy! We’ll definitely be back!

Broadlea Primary tomorrow for our last presentation for a while, and what a way to finish…a spectacular Bonebreaker presentation! Watch out Broadlea…things are about to get scary!
