Spring Term 2017

A new term and a new book for our Y5 & Y6 Book Club.

The children have chosen ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ by Louis Sachar as their book for the Spring term (2017).

Louis Sachar’s ‘Holes’ won the John Newbery Medal in 1999.  (The John Newbery Medal is a literary award given by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association.)

The Y5 & Y6 Book Club meets between 12.00noon and 1.00pm every Thursday lunch time.

Louis Sachar (who lives in Austin, Texas) kindly sent a message to the Book Club children.  The children have glued his message to the inside of the front cover of their books.

Here’s what he said:

Dear Liverpudlians, (I love that word!),
I’m glad you’re reading There’s A Boy In The Girls’ Bathroom.  By now you’ve read about Carla.   Although the story is made up, about 36 years ago I met a school counselor named Carla, and she was the inspiration for the character.  She’s inspired me in other ways too.  We’ve been married since 1985.
Your friend,
Louis Sachar
