Sean the Actor What Do the Grown-ups Do? by Mairi McLellanSean the Actor is the third book of the series 'What Do the Grown-Ups Do?' The stories are based on life in the north-west Highlands of Scotland in a village called Badaneel and follow three local girls as they investigate the world of grown-up jobs. Designed for children aged 5-10 years, their aim is to help children understand different jobs and educate them about working life in a light-hearted manner. Whilst in story format, they are also factual, based on a real place, written about real people. Sean the actor visits Badaneel for the screening of his latest film. Before he heads off to meet and greet the guests, he spends some time with the Mackenzie girls, educating them on the pros and cons of acting. He has them in stitches with different accents, talks about the enjoyable, yet unpredictable nature of acting life, and explains why you must never look at the camera! Other books in the series include: Joe the Fisherman, Papa the Stockfarmer, Fiona the Doctor and Richard the Vet. My children constantly ask, 'What do the grown ups do at work?' It was this interest that sparked the idea for the books. Whilst they love to play, they are equally eager to tag along with the adults, learning new things, says Mairi, about her inspiration for the series. I thought it would be useful to educate them about the workplace and broaden their ideas for their life ahead. Although the message is educational, it is designed to be fun too, she said.
