Interest Age 7-12 Reading Age 7+ A magical story about bringing people together. Shona has met a lot of apparently very different people on her day out with her Dad. At the Natural History Museum she meets Lucy who actually lived 3.2 million years ago. On the underground on the way home there are all kinds of people – Pinstripe Man, Kindle Woman, the iPod twins, Tattoo Fellow and Doctor Bananas who can do all kinds of magic. They all look completely different and seem to behave very differently. But it turns out that they have a lot in common, too!

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 7+

Synopsis

All Sorts to Make a World by John Agard

Shona and her dad are just returning from a trip to the Natural History Museum when - oh no! - their train comes to a halt. What can Shona do to pass the time except study the passengers in her carriage? Fun, light-hearted comedy.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 7+
