Author Visit: Steve Cole

We were treated to the hugely energetic and hilarious Steve Cole this week, author of over 150 books and a firm favourite with the children. Steve has written many series including Astrosaurs, Cows in Action and Slime Squad and he entertained the children with improvised stories (starring Emma-Rose 4T as Superdog!), ukele playing and readings from his books. We learnt that using one’s imagination is best for creating story ideas – the more strange and bizarre the better! To the question, ‘When did you become an author’ he replied, ‘When I was 5 years old and first put pencil to paper.’ Yes indeed – we are all storytellers and writers at St Nicholas!
