Team Pobble’s favourite writing

by Anna Whiteley
on September 27, 2017


The Pobble Team are lucky enough to read, share and comment on hundreds of pieces of children’s writing from around the world every week. We find poems and diary entries, descriptions and adventure stories. There’s something different and wonderful every time we log onto Pobble.

From time to time, we come across a piece that really stands out. Often because it makes us smile or laugh out loud, sometimes because it’s a particular genre of writing that we really enjoy, occasionally because it’s so well written that you’d be forgiven for thinking it was written by a famous author.

We asked some of the Pobble team to share their favourite pieces of writing, we hope you enjoy reading them as much as we do!
