Pupils launch book at Holy Cross RC Primary School

'Mythical Maze Goes to School' is a collection of fantastic short stories written by the Primary 7's of Holy Cross Primary, Edinburgh. The book is based around the characters of the '2014 Summer Reading Challenge', which the Primary 7's also played a part in creating.

Mary Turner Thomson assisted P7 in the editing and publishing of the book. Primary 7 were split into groups of 4 or 5 where they were given a part to play writing their short story. Each group managed to write stellar, spectacular, splendid stories which Mary Turner Thomson was extremely impressed with.

'Mythical Maze Goes to School' is written by children, for children (and adult's too!) Each story is packed with morals, lessons and general amazingness! Overall this book is a great success and our whole school is extremely proud of all the Primary 7's hard work! Imagine being a published author at the age of 10 or 11! Amazing!
