About the book club:

The book club consists of 6 children from year 3 and 4. There are a variety of abilities and backgrounds in the group. The children aren’t keen readers (they wouldn’t choose to sit and read independently). We have been meeting once a week at the start of the day. We read the book independently at the speed of each individual, but there’s a lot of talking and sharing funny parts. They also flip to the blurb regularly to fill in the blacked out parts.

What our educators thought

“This book has been brilliant for this group. They aren’t keen readers but every single one has asked every day when we’re reading next. They have also taken it home to share with parents and have asked me to find other graphic novels for them. The buzz this book has created for these 6 children is incredible. It’s easily accessible for children who aren’t fluently reading yet and the pictures help to tell the story.”

Out of 5 stars, the educator gives this book:
