When I heard that a great author will be visiting our very own, Delhi Public School North Kolkata, I was overwhelmed. The great author who visited our school was Ken Spillman. He is an Australian author. He has penned some famous books like- Jake’s Great Game, Jake’s Gigantic List, Jake’s Cooking Craze, Jake’s Balloon Blast and Jake’s Monster Mess. On that particular day I could not believe my eyes that a great author like him was standing in front of me and even shook hands with me.
He started a story telling session with the students of DPS North Kolkata. The way he narrated the story was extremely awesome. He made actual sounds of kicking a football, the ball hitting someone, an aeroplane landing etc. He also shared his thoughts about his books. After that he encouraged a question-answer session. It was like a dream come true. When I asked him a question, he praised me and answered it lovingly. It was a great experience worth remembering. I wish my school, DPS North Kolkata, gives me more such opportunities to meet great authors in future.
