Rye School takes Nim to town
They presented me with a poster that will be hung in shop windows in Rye when people borrow a Nim’s Island from the school – because they hope that all the families at the school have now had a chance to read Nim’s Island together, and are ‘re now taking the book out to shops and places in town. (How great is it that the school’s crest includes a seal?)
I couldn’t scan it all in one, but the school’s crest hangs down from the book poster.
