14 Aug, 2013 | What's happening in my writing life
On Monday afternoon I returned home to a bundle of emails from students at a primary school I will be visiting very soon. They all warmed my heart and once again, reminded me of why I write for children. Thank you children. Here are a few of them (creative name-spelling included). 'Hi Correine, We like Flame stands waiting its a good book and we would have crowned it the best children's book.' Dear Corinne Fenton, We love your two books 'Queenie & Flame stands waiting... we read both of these books at school. these books have real things in it, ex:Queenie is a real elephant, and flame stands waiting is in Luna Park! These books are wonderfull and touching. we cant wait for you to come to our school! Dear Corrine, I love the book "flame still waiting" it is the best book ever!!!!! Also queenie was awesome you're a great writer Dear Corinne I love the books you make.'
