"We began our space topic in September and this book worked perfectly alongside our topic work... When reading the book in the classroom, you could hear a pin drop and the children got thoroughly lost in the story of Lucky... Thank you for writing such a moving and stimulating book."She also enclosed some letters that her class had written to me. They were so amazing that I really wanted to meet the people who wrote them! So I offered to go and visit.
I discovered that they'd done a huge amount of fascinating work. They'd visited the National Space Centre in Leicester, to learn more about the stars. They'd made diaries from various characters' points of view; made newspaper articles and fact files; they'd even made Axxa boots! Unfortunately I didn't get to see the boots, but I did see some of their writing and it was outstanding!
I found a lovely comment here on my site shortly after the visit:
