The language throughout the book is poetic and the sentence construction paints powerful images in your mind. The tiger's presence is commanding yet calm and the way in which the tries to get the client princess t talk is very touching. This is a must read for ages 8-11.
There's been a lot of amazing people who have changed history and shaped how we live today, but often we don't talk about the women who have done just that. This book is fantastic to find out about lots of different brilliant females who have been brave, bold, talented and simply fantastic. It's easy to read, full of interesting facts and great illustrations to help children from 7-11 years. Read about their journeys to success and how they have inspired others along the way! What do you notice about the author's name? Does it sound familiar?
Do you remember when we had the exciting visit from Author Eamon Reilly in school? A lot of you bought his books and as a result, school was given some for free. They're in our brand new library, waiting to be read. Here is Miss McCann's review on 'Tall Tales'. You can use it as an example for how to complete an entry to the book review competition or as a book to add to your wish-list.
