I swing the bat hard

The softball flys through the air

On Thursday the 23rd of July Archie Fusillo came to our classroom to teach us about writing and drawing. He was very funny and creative. He told us all about how he started off as an author and all the way through to where he is now. We drew some pictures of the characters in his books. We drew Billy – Bob, Tripod and Chook Woman. Here are some pictures from his visit.
