Scottish Children’s Book Awards 2016

6 S2 pupils joined Ms Thirde for a trip to the Award Ceremony in Glasgow.  We heard from Danny Weston and Elizabeth Wein, two of the shortlisted authors.  Joan Lingard couldn’t make it but her agent read an excerpt from her book.

In the end it was the BHS choice Danny Weston who won with The Piper!
