Serena Patel Online Visit
This week, every class had a question and answer session through video chat with Serena Patel, a new children’s author from Walsall and and the characters in her books reflect the diversity of the area. She writes a series of books about Anisha Mistry, a Hindu girl from Birmingham, with a large and noisy family, who enjoys science, maths and solving mysteries. We have read the first chapter of her first book ‘Anisha: Accidental Detective’ and prepared some questions that we wanted to find out about. It was interesting to learn about how important planning and editing is in the writing process and how long she spends editing, changing and improving her writing. We tried to predict who we thought had committed the crime using the evidence from the book, but we will have to read the rest of the story to find out if we were right!
