En­thralled by au­thor’s tales

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

CHIL­DREN’S au­thor, Chris­tine Roberts, vis­ited Chal­font St Peter Montes­sori school to read her new story The Very Shy Pic­ture Book.

She also read her yet-tobe pub­lished book dur­ing her visit last week about a sleepy traf­fic light.

The chil­dren were en­thralled by both sto­ries, es­pe­cially the funny voices Chris­tine used for the dif­fer­ent an­i­mals in her first book.

She an­swered lots of ques­tions from the chil­dren and teach­ers too, ex­plain­ing what had given her the idea to write a story about a sleepy traf­fic light, which the chil­dren found very funny.

Deputy prin­ci­pal Deb­bie Lo­max said: “The chil­dren loved lis­ten­ing to Chris­tine read to them to­day, and were de­lighted when many of the par­ents bought signed copies of the book at go­ing home time.

“Chris­tine has also promised to come back when her new traf­fic light story is pub­lished later this year”.
