Meerkat Mail (with picture gallery)

Pye Bank children showing their artwork.

Author Emily GravettThe Messenger asked author Emily Gravett to comment on the work Pye Bank kids had done on her wonderful Meerkat Mail children’s book. She sent this response, plus three autographed copies of her book to the school.

“I’m so impressed by the work that the kids from Pye Bank have done based on my book. I think there’s a future generation of authors and illustrators being nurtured in that school. It makes me so happy to see a school promoting a love of books and reading, because once a child is in love with reading, anything else is possible.”

We didn’t have room in our latest issue to feature all the wonderful works of Meerkat Mail art by the pupils of Pye Bank CE Primary School, so we’ve added a gallery of them all here on our website:
