    I love clockwork great idea thanks
  6. I have also used Michael Morpurgo - almost any of his books.
    Other classes looked at Jaqueline Wilson, Horowitz, JK Rowling, Francesca Simon, Roal Dahl and so on - we made sure that each class looked at a different author and then they had to present their findings about the author to each other.
