The students at James Fallon Elementary in New Jersey have been doing a Seymour Simon Author Study, and they finished it up with a virtual author visit (also known as a Skype session) with Seymour Simon on Monday. These are his interviewers - fourth and fifth graders who had lots of questions for him, especially about his newly re-published and always popular book, STRANGE MYSTERIES.


Some students wondered whether he knew what happened to the  "ghost ship" Marie Céleste, found abandoned but steaming ahead in the Atlantic Ocean, even though the weather was good and her crew was experienced. But of course, if he knew the answer, it wouldn’t be a famous mystery!

Their teacher, Lorrie Maggio-Huber, wrote after the session: The students at Fallon had a great time concluding their author study with a super discussion with Mr. Simon!
