Tripod have been regulars on the international live comedy circuit, regulars on radio and television, and have written musicals for the screen and stage.
Fiona Harris and Scott Edgar are co-creators, along with beloved children’s author Sally Rippin, of the beautiful series Super Moopers, out now from Bonnier. This is Scott’s first book.
Our Year 2, 3 and 4 students absolutely loved Fiona Harris and Scott Edgar and were thoroughly engaged through their entire presentation. From the first song, through the inspiring journey of how the Super Moopers came to be, a very entertaining reading of one of the stories, and together creating a new character from scratch, our students were captivated. It was wonderful to see the collaborative work of Fiona and Scott, not only as author and illustrator of the series, but also the ease with which they work together during the presentation. Thank you Fiona and Scott for a very inspiring and lively presentation showing the joy of creating wonderful stories for our children.
Our 1/2 children loved hearing about The Super Moopers from author, Fiona Harris and illustrator, Scott Edgar. In a fun and engaging way, Fiona and Scott shared how they created a new world and peopled it with amazing characters. The children joined in singing along with the Moopertown song and laughed lots as Scott drew some of the characters they suggested. After the visit the children were keen to create their own Super Moopers and couldn’t stop writing and talking about the books. They even created a class mural about their own imaginary world. A great way to get children inspired to read, write and draw and to enrich their understanding of how books are made.
Our school visit from Super Moopers creators, Fiona Harris and Scott Edgar, added so much value to our 1/2 English program! Through their engaging and interactive presentation, which included singing, storytelling and drawing, Fiona and Scott shared their journey as writer and illustrator, from generating ideas, showing persistence and the continual desire to grow as creators. Not only did they promote skills and attitudes that make a good writer, artist and reader, but they assisted our students in making the writing and illustrating process purposeful. We thoroughly enjoyed their time with us and cannot wait for the release of more Mooper books!
