  • Loved this book!

    by on

    My son is 7 and adores Margaret Wild. This book is quite emotionally advanced but he loved how it made him feel. Highly recommend.

  • Excellent choice to teach critical literacy

    by on

    This text encompasses many themes that will always be relevant, such as friendship, loyalty, betrayal, greed, trust and making decisions. It is superbly illustrated by Ron Brooks and the illustrations do more than just tell half the story. A sensational book for junior through to senior primary school students learning about critical literacy.
