Last term we did an author study on three authors. One of these authors was Joy Watson. She lives in Havelock North. When we were doing our author study we talked to Joy Watson using a polycom conference. On August the 27th Joy Watson came to visit our school.
She told us about her family. She has nine children altogether - seven daughters, two sons and twenty eight grandchildren.
Joy Watson has had fifteen books published - five of these are about Grandpa. All of these books are still available to buy. Some of her other books that she had with her were,"Just in Case," "Zita the Zebra'" and "Pets." She told us that she writes stories because she likes reading stories. She also talked about having an idea and how it can be true or made up. She read us a Camel story. Matua gave her some flowers and Joshua said thank you and gave her one of Mrs. E's famous cakes. We really enjoyed her visit and wish she could have read a whole story but she had to go onto Team 2.
