KPE Episode 173 "Family Surprises"

"Family Surprises" by Margaret Mahy
This podcast is letting you know about another book in the Kiwi Bites series. We really love the Kiwi Bites books here at Pt England School! Pheonix and Jaydn present this story by one of New Zealand's most famous authors, Margaret Mahy. We always expect to see unexpected characters in her books and this one has them all. A dragon who is different from the rest of her family who becomes friends with a boy who is different from the rest of his family. Together they show their families that they are pretty cool kids (or should that be dragon and kids?) and have some fun and adventures along the way. We know you will enjoy the podcast and reading the book.

    Well done you podcasting pros! You did such a good job of writing this podcast and editing it as well. I don't know how Margaret Mahy comes up with all these crazy ideas for her books.
    Did you go to the Storylines Festival at the Aotea Centre last year? It is on again on June 15th and Margaret Mahy is going to be there too.

    Keep up the good work.
