On Wednesday SHS invited Shrewsbury Lodge along to listen to author Laura James talk about her Pug series. Laura chatted to the children about her love of animals, her two dogs as well as her literary dog (Pug), who is not very brave but always up for an adventure. The children enjoyed hearing about Pug's character, his love of jam tarts and his faithful companion Lady Miranda. A lively interactive session followed with Laura working with the children to build a character for a story. The event finished with a Q&A and the children asking lots of questions about ideas for writing and dogs…..! Great fun was had by all.
Cowboy Pug is shortlisted for the Waterstones Childrens Book Prize 2017.
