Today in school we finished reading
a really great book.
It was called Emlyn’s Moon and is by
the wonderful writer Jenny Nimmo.
This book is the 2nd in a trilogy
(three book series).
We already read the first book in the series.
It was called ‘The Snow Spider’.
Both were challenging reads for 2nd class
but we really enjoyed them.
Isabella thought that the book
had really good twists.
Clara said that she enjoyed the mystery.
Shauna loved the magic.
Alice thought it was magical too,
and she always wanted to find out
what happened next.
Nicole said that this book would inspire her
to write better stories.
She could see a pattern in the plot
of happy parts, scary parts and twists.
If any of the boys and girls would like to watch
over the summer, just click on the title of the book above
for the ITV serialization on You Tube. A word to the wise;
Please monitor your child’s use of the internet. It is a
portal to an unedited outside world.
There are very useful summaries of these book
on these links;
and here for ‘Emlyn’s Moon’
The themes in the third book in the series;
the excellent ‘The Chestnut Soldier’
are more suitable to an older child. (10+)
