Today one of our agents Hannah was lucky enough to get in on the Book Week action, and visited Pascoe Vale South Primary School to see the brilliant Fiona Harris and Scott Edgar talk about their new series, the Super Moopers!
The grade 2 and 3 students were treated to a rousing song about Moopertown, which also helped to wake up Scott. They saw how Fiona and Scott worked together to come up with the character designs for the Moopers (the inhabitants of Moopertown) and some of the preliminary names for the series. They also learnt that Every Picture Tells a Story (a very important take home message).
At the end of the session Fiona and Scott read the story of Dramatic Dom, and then created a new Super Mooper character, Fearless Freddie (pictured below). Scott showed how the face and body language of a character helps us understand their mood.
Here is some feedback from Inga Spyrou, a grade 2/3 teacher at Pascoe Vale South Primary School:
On Wednesday the 23rd of August, Pascoe Vale South P.S. had the privilege of being thoroughly entertained by the hilarious Fiona Harris and Scott Edgar. Fiona (Author) and Scott (Illustrator) created the extremely colourful and energetic series, The Super Moopers.
Fiona and Scott were absolutely fantastic! The students, and staff, were captivated the entire time. Dramatic Dom, Giggling Gertie, Musical Markus and Nervous Nellie will definitely win a place in every child’s heart. Fiona and Scott, these Super Moopers are an absolute credit to you both. Congratulations and thank you.
A big thank you to Fiona, Scott and Pascoe Vale South Primary School for letting Hannah tag along for the session.
