P3W at the Booked festival

P3W had a fantastic time attending a Booked Festival event today.

They were lucky enough to meet children’s author Mike Nicholson, who writes the ‘Museum Mystery Squad’ stories.

Mr Nicholson talked to the children about the books he loved as a child, and how these mystery stories inspired him to write some of his own. He spoke about his love for museums, especially the National Museum of Scotland, in Edinburgh.

Mr Nicholson also gave insights into how he comes up with a story, and how long it takes him to write a first draft.

P3W were even lucky enough to each get a copy of one of Mr Nicholson’s books, ‘The Case of the Curious Coins’!
