On Thursday 26th April 2018,We were very fortunate to meet author Robin Stevens who came to our school to visit years 4,5 and 6 as part of The Chipping Norton Literary Festival. Robin is the author of the Murder Most Unladylike Series and The Guggenheim Mystery sequel to The London Eye Mystery written by Siobhan Dowd
First she started talking about her youth and how she came to be a murder mystery author. After which, she told us about her travels to Hong Kong and the interesting different foods she ate there. She also went on to talk about how she got to go behind the scenes at Palace theatre in London which happens to be starring in her next book which is coming out in October this year.
Next, she told us about how we ourselves could write our very own murder mystery. To get us started and motivated with our murder writing we created a mystery altogether with Robin Stevens. We gave her ideas about the suspects, setting and victim, which she turned into a murder mystery story. After we discovered the murderer in our story that we created,Robin went on to tell us about her pet bearded dragon named after a famous detectives sidekick, Watson.
We then got the opportunity to ask some questions which she answered. After that she signed our newly bought books: Murder Most Unladylike; Arsenic for Tea; First Class Murder; Jolly Foul Play; Mistletoe and Murder; Cream Buns and Crime and A Spoonful of Murder. We were also given a Detective Society badges and a bookmark.
