Early one morning, Mem Fox left for Loxton North PS!

Mem Fox, the author of Early one morning and 44 other books (as she told the children at Loxton North Primary School), travelled 3 hours to visit a delightful and delighted group of students and school staff.

Library coordinator Sue Jones said, “To have a very special author come to our school was very special. We have a number of Mem Fox books and Where is the Green Sheep is the most popular.”

Mem said, “When I’m in the middle of a good book, I might be doing chores and all I can think about is how badly I want to get back to my book…I want children to feel the same way”.
