'Lob' by Linda Newbery

Also from the Guardian, this time from the 9th August, is this lovely article about Linda Newbery and her inspiration for her latest book 'Lob'. I absolutely loved this book for younger readers. The larger print makes this gentle, magical story perfect for the newly competent reader, and for reading aloud at home or in the classroom. The issues that it deals with are presented with loads of room for discussion, relating to and expanding on... or just for pure enjoyment. It's one of those books that will stay with you forever...regardless of your age when you read it.
(You can check out my review of 'Lob' in the 'Reviews from me and others' page.)
