My Writing group, the Oreos, are writing a picture book for years 4 up. It's about a girl and boy who go on an adventure through a forest, discover a glitter pool, meet a mermaid and some pirates, and battle a friendly crocodile!
Here's a sneak peak of it, a paragraph that I wrote when they discover the beautiful 'Glitter Pool'

How much could small Bob and Jill hold?
But before the pair could grab it all,
Bob heard a scream, and saw Jill fall.

Into the deep dark pool she fell
So Bob took a breath, and followed as well.
Where was Jill? Bob was afraid,
but soon he found her talking to a mermaid!

She had golden hair and big blue eyes,
A shimmering tail, oh what a surprise!
She greeted Bob with a friendly smile,
and said “Why don’t you stay here for a while?”

We have almost finished it, and we will be able to start the illustrations soon!
