Collins Big Cat - How to Capture a Castle: Band 11+/Lime Plus

Paperback

All you need to know about capturing a castle, with lessons from 700 years of castle-capturing history.

Lime Plus/Band 11+ books provide challenging plots and vocabulary as well as opportunities to practise inference, prediction and reading stamina.

Pages 46 and 47 allow children to re-visit the content of the book, supporting comprehension skills, vocabulary development and recall.

Ideas for reading in the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities.

Rob is a dad and he writes books. He works hidden away in an upstairs room so he can get some peace and quiet, but if he looks out of the window, and stretches his neck just a little, he can actually see a real-live castle. In fact, the house Rob live in started out as a hovel, built in one of the castle's outer moats. There's even bits of smashed up castle in its walls. So what better person to write about castles? Rob has pieces of one all around him, and even a bit of moat to wade about in if he needs to practise my castle capturing skills. He doesn’t have an elephant though, or a whale – and these can come in useful, as you'll see.

Rob Alcraft, Prepared for publication by Collins Big Cat

Rob is a dad and he write books – and he also sometimes drives a library bus. The bus is full of books, so on his journeys around the countryside with his pop-up library he’s surrounded by stories, adventures and possibilities. It's useful to have all this inspiration and fun around him, though the only problem is that when he stops, people come on board and take his books away! Of course, Rob doesn’t really mind. He likes to imagine the secret worlds they're going to find, and the ideas and people and places they're going to discover. It's why Rob think books are so wonderful. Open one up and you never quite know where it will take you. Happy reading.
