Message:Eoin: That is very exciting news. I must watch. What are you doing? By the way, where are you from - just remind me.
Patricia: When I was teaching in England I don't think I ever even heard of an all-girl/all-boy primary school. I found them quite strange when I started to visit schools in Ireland.
Bridget: That's very interesting about Thanksgiving - it's a bit like Christmas, I suppose.
Imelda: The favourite is 'Treachery at Midnight', though I like 'Doomed to Die' as well.

Message:Cora, I really like being with the boys because I was with them in junior infants, senior infants and first class. I would have been around 6 or 7 and back then we thought boys were annoying but theyíre great crack. Itís a pity we werenít mixed. I also like that we get free classes as well but itís mostly the boys!

Message:Hi Cora:
Thanksgiving was created by Americans to remember when the pilgirms came here and the Native Americans helped them to grow food and stay alive. The following year the pilgrims invited the Native Americans to a feast to thank them.
Because of that, we usually eat more than anything. We eat turkey, which is a tradition, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and almost anything else.

Message:Emer, Laura & Sam: I'm glad you like 'Wolf in the Midnight Forest'. It's a great favourite of mine. Yes, the puppy Wolf in the story is certainly inspired by my dog, Wolf, when he was a puppy.

Bridget: What sort of things do you do, or eat, for Thanksgiving?

Patricia: What do you like best about secondary school?

Message:Patricia: I don't know you and I don't know the Principal of your school so I am not sure what to advise. However, I will do my best (as a former principal, teacher and teenage rebel!) I would feel rather uneasy rather uneasy about advising you to complain to the Principal. It might get you labelled as a rebel. I think you should just say: 'no thanks' politely to the request to get involved in a Charity Show. Just give some excuse like that you are busy or something - games, homework, writing a novel!

Many thanks for the 'teen-speak' It's really useful and interesting (I notice that I often say: 'really'!). I've put it on to my extract.

Name: Patricia
Message:Cora, What do you think of that teacher who wants you to do a charity event that no one will support, a complete waste of time and no one wants to sing (including me) and I'm the only one that would say it to her. She also gets hysterical. Do you think I should give out to her or complain to the princpal which people have alreagy done. Shes my english teacher and she can't teach for her life.

Name: Patricia
Message:Cora, I know that I was one of the oldest in the class and I was always told by teachers that I was very mature and responable and I would make it great in secondary last year. But now I'm been told by a teacher that I have now that I'm very un mature and that I should start listening to her and not doing my own thing which I think is a whole lot of rubbish and I should be able to choose of what I want to do.

Message:Stephanie: The publisher who did the Wolf stories (Merlin) has decided to give up children's books. I have managed to find another publisher to do the Drumshee books (Mentor Books) but I haven't found anyone to do the next two Wolf books. I'm glad you like them because they are great favourites of mine.

Message:Alannah; I normally, these days, plan about ten chapters. Whe I started writing first I used to plan about fifteen chapters, but now I find that as I write about things occur to me. I suppose, now, I am more confident of my own ability to come up with ideas.

Patricia: That would be great. I look forward to hearing from you on Sunday.
I think that you were probably mentally too old for primary school. In England, where I taught, kids went to secondary when they were eleven (like Class Five here). I actually think that 99.5% of them were ready to go to secondary school, but I have never managed to convince Irish teachers of this!

Message:I'll try to do it on Sunday. I was in 6xt class and when I left no one cried for us neither did we thought. But when I was in 2nd to 5ft they all cried. I think its stuipt to cry. I was excited to go to secondary.

Message:Cora: The extract of Chapter 5 sounds really good. I can't wait until it comes out. Did you plan what was going to happen before you wrote it or did you just write it as you went along?

Message:Many thanks, Patricia, I'm very relieved that you think it sounds OK. I know that you have a very good ear for the way kids of your age talk so perhaps you could spare the time to write down a few typical remarks from boys and girls. That would really help me also - I will use the things that you and Ursula have sent.
