Our Trip to Phibsboro Library By Ellie

Today we went to Phibsboro Library. We went to see an author called Erika McGann. She spoke about her books and she read a bit for us. She showed us some covers for her book Broken Spell. The covers were amazing. They were all so good. I couldn’t chose which one was my favourite. She was the winner of the Waverton Good Read Chidlren’s Prize 2014 for the Demon Notebook, the first in her magical series about Grace and her four friends. She gave us copies of the Fairytale Trap. She also gave all of us  bookmarks and posters. It was the first time I ever met an author. And on the way back on the bus me and my friends couldn’t stop talking about it! It was a fantastic day!

A Trip to the Library By Alex

Today, the 6th of October we walked to the library on Phibsboro. We meet an author named Erika McGann. She was the winner of the Waverton Good Read Chidlren’s Prize 2014 for the Demon Notebook, the first in her magical series about Grace and her four friends. She was reading the Demon Notebook for a while. After that, she showed some of her pictures her friends made. My favourite one was when the girl was crawling out of the grave and she had red eyes. After she showed us some of her other books. One was Fairytale Trap, the Broken Spell and Watching Wood. I got the book The Fairytale Trap. I am sure it will be good because the graphics are cool. The book was made in 2012. After that, we took the bus home.

Our Visit to Phibsboro Library By Asha

This morning at 9.30am we left school for a visit to Phibsboro Public Library. We met Erika McGann and she told us about her her magical series about Grace and her four friends. Firstly she told us about herself. After that Erika read to us the beginning of the fourth book in the series, The Midnight Carnival. We liked all the covers that her editor made but many of them wouldn’t get picked up from the shelf. My favourite was the one with the black background, white icons and pink and red titles.

We asked her questions. She had a perfect answer for each one! Finally, she gave out bookmarks of her books. Then we took the bus back.
