'Cow-razy' Steve Cole is a huge hit at Lochinver House!


STEVE COLE, the ever-scribbling, slightly crazy author of the Astrosaurs & Cows-in-Action, the new Young Bond, Z-Rex, Slime Squad and Tripwire series along with several original Doctor Who Stories was guest of honour at Lochinver House for World Book Day yesterday.  Steve has already written 155 books, most of which have been translated into several other languages.

'Large as life and twice as fun', Steve told the boys in Years 3, 4 and 5 that he just can't stop writing and when he does, strange robots appear and jostle him vigorously!  Whilst talking about creativity and imagination to the boys in many different voices and with his brain seemingly working even faster than those voices, Steve managed to create stories from the boys' suggestions as he went along - amazing!

The boys were completely captivated and the happy sounds of laughter, enjoyment and requests for encores poured from the Library.  It is very safe to say that Steve was very much the highlight of the boys' day!

Thank you, Steve, for sharing your inspiration and magic with us!

    Yesterday's first ever Pre Prep Lego Club was a massive hit! The boys listened to 'Whatever next' by Jill Murphy and then designed rockets for Baby Bear to fly to the moon, complete with a seat for his companion, Owl. Next week the boys will design and construct landmarks.
