The book tells the story of Tom Hanson, a boy who receives a mysterious package from a long distant relative. This occurrence sets in motion a series of events that send Tom and his friend Ben on the greatest adventure of their life.
Mr Brian explained how he had the idea for the book when he was a little boy. He had written an essay outlining the story, for which he got a pat on the back and a very good mark! As years rolled on, he kept on thinking about this story. One day he decided to put pen to paper (or rather finger to keyboard) and write it all down. The result became The Ponds of Wonder.
After his talk, Mr Brian took time to answer questions from the students and was also kind enough to sign their books.
