David Walliams Gangster Granny

Hi all

I have been very interested to read your reviews on Catboy, it sounds like a great book and we will be  looking to see if we can get hold of a copy.

We had a great discussion today at bookclub about a David Walliams book called Gangster Granny. Quite a few of our students had read it and seen the film and we wondered if you had come across this book?

We are going to post some reviews on it soon so hopefully you will be inspired to get yourselves a copy.

We will hopefully be more active in the coming weeks :)

Cat Boy take-aways

Most of our group loved the book as much as the hot chocolate and apple cider we enjoyed together. 
I thought I'd wrap up our study of this book with a few more quotes from our book club members: 

"My ancestors came from Siberia and came to Canada because they saw how beautiful Canada is."

"Our school is like Taylor's because we have many different cultures and people come form places like Egypt, Jamaica, England, Korea, Pakistan, Ethiopia, and Germany."

"My ancestors came from El Salvador and they came for a better life."

"People from other places in the world are just like you and me."

"For the rest of time there will be different cultures so it's great if you can learn about and understand them."

"My Dad came from Ethiopia because of political reasons."

" Our school is like Taylor's because it is multicultural--just look at me!"
