05 Dec Author of the month – Eoin Colfer
Each month our Reading Ambassadors will choose an Author of the Month, encouraging children to discover books they may not have tried before. December’s choice is Eoin (pronounced Owen) Colfer. Colfer is the writer of the hugely successful Artemis Fowl series (the first of which is soon to be made into a film by Disney) as well as other series such as The Legend of… series and WARP.
Mums and Dads might also be interested to know he’s written a novel continuing the famous Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series, started by the late Douglas Adams. Our school library has a small selection of Colfer’s books for children to borrow, but we also encourage you to visit your local library to find what they have available as well.
We’d love to hear from children who try a book by Eoin Colfer and book review sheets are available from Mr East, Miss Brick, the Reading Ambassadors or in the school library. We’d love to publish your thoughts on Colfer’s books in the newsletter or on the website.
