When I started writing books for kids it never occurred to me that I would be making presentations at schools.  Last Friday I was in another school–Uplands Elementary in Penticton–with a fantastic group of grade fives.  The teachers and the students were great.  How lucky I am to be able to visit young people where they spend so much of their time, to get asked so many questions that make me think, like “If you weren’t writing what would you like to be doing?”  (something in music) and “what’s your favourite animal? (humans).  Thanks people.  Thanks to the students and teachers of Uplands Elementary and to all the other schools where I have had the pleasure of presenting for adding to the joy in my life.
