I Am So Proud of My Son...

This arrived in the post today. It was a project that Max's school entered all the children into - the idea was to write a 'mini saga' in 50 words or less. They had 30,000 entries and his was chosen to go into the Eastern Region book. I am assuming that a lot of the entries will be included as they are producing books for each region - even so, I am so proud of him. The people running the publication will be writing to his school to say that he was one of the winners, so he should get some praise there too.

He has also been in the local paper, in the last year, for writing a story about an alien ship landing in the playground. One child from each year won a small prize and got their story published. He won for Year 3. Maybe we have a Booker Prize winner in the making...
