Reviews

‘The Ice Man is a great cross-curricula text for science, geography and history. The book is an excellent length and packed full of interesting info.’
Fiona Dyson, Southfields Academy, on The Ice Man by Alan Parkinson
‘Boys were very excited and I haven’t seen boys of this ability as engaged in their reading. Students had no idea what a gladiator was and were impressed when they found out. All wanted to be gladiators by the end of it! Much better than the competition.’Kristy Sheeran, Queensbury School, Bradford on Gladiator by Alan Gibbons and Robbie Gibbons
‘At the end of the session, three boys asked if they could take Lone Wolf home. This has never happened before.’
Fiona Dyson, Southfields Academy, London on Lone Wolf by Alan Gibbons and Robbie Gibbons
‘Students loved Lone Wolf. The pace was good and they enjoyed the illustrations. The amount of text per page was good and lent itself to listening to children reading aloud in a group. My dyslexic children found the pages easier to read because of the line spacing. Some great opportunities for extension work.’
Sarah Beach, Langham Primary School, Rutland on Lone Wolf by Alan Gibbons and Robbie Gibbons
‘Liam by Benjamin Zephaniah was very enjoyable and funny for teenagers: high interest level and clearly written, accessible and engaging, with topics that young people can relate to. Would appeal to weak readers at KS4 as well as KS3 which is a major strength.’
Fiona Dyson, Southfields Academy on Liam by Benjamin Zephaniah
