Au­thor and Badger pop in to visit pupils

Rutherglen Reformer - - School News -

Burn­side Pri­mary pupils got to hear a real shaggy dog story re­cently.

The school was vis­ited by au­thor Laura Jack­son, who writes the Badger the Mys­ti­cal Mutt se­ries of books.

And Badger him­self popped by too!

The visit fea­tured the writer ex­plain­ing where she gets her ideas from, while also recre­at­ing some of Badger’s many ad­ven­tures.

There are cur­rently eight books in the se­ries, which fo­cus around a mag­i­cal dog and his es­capades.

The sto­ries deal with is­sues such as bul­ly­ing, dis­abil­ity and prej­u­dice, while the over­rid­ing theme of all Badger books is about en­cour­ag­ing chil­dren to fol­low their dreams, am­bi­tion and to have self-be­lief.

Pic­tured are Laura and Badger with pupils Louis Robert­son, Daisy Burns, Melissa Men­nie, Joshua Mitchell, Amelia McNeil and Rory Mitchell.
