Tommy Kapai Wilson

On the 7 of September a very special person came to our school. Uncle Anzac aka Tommy Kapai Wilson he is very well known for writing books about a Kiwi named Kapai. When he came he talked about many things.

When Tommy was younger his father lied about his age so that he could join the army (he was only seventeen). When his father came back he said, “I’m not going to be alone anymore.” He made rules which were never violence, always make ten people smile a day, hard case humour. Now Tommy pushed it up to make 20 people smile a day.

Later on in his life he went and worked as a dishwasher in a restaurant (I know it’s not the best job in the world but at least he had one). Then he got a job as a butler for a famous person and he got a Ferrari, a boat and lots of money. But he decided to go back home to his family.

When he came back he started to write children's books and that is how he became a famous author. His most popular books are Kapai the kiwi.

Maybe when I get older I can become an author if I try hard enough. Tommy Kapai Wilson has inspired me of what I can be or do in the future.

Thank you Tommy.
