About the Author:

Peter Giddens studied at Canterbury University and The Christchurch College of Education in Christchurch, New Zealand and has been teaching ever since. His teaching philosophy is based on literacy and numeracy – that reading is utterly necessary for learning; it’s all about language; oh, and that basic mathematical understanding is essential too. In the school he travels here and there and to many of the places in between.
