Interest Age 7-12 Reading Age 7+ Prity is newly arrived in England and new to her school in Tottenham. She has learnt English at school in India but, even though she speaks the same language as her classmates, she can’t always understand enough to join in the games! Everything is so different. All Prity wants is for someone to explain things to her! Gradually, and helped by her class mates, spirited Prity soon learns to fit in and to have fun. And just when she’s settled – the family are about to move again! Best-selling Mary Hoffman, author of Amazing Grace, brings the experience of a newcomer in the classroom vividly to life.

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

Deadly Letter by Mary Hoffman

Prity is fed up of England. It's cold, wet and she doesn't understand any of the rules for Deadly Letter, the most popular playground game. The other kids aren't exactly welcoming either, but Prity is determined to make a place for herself in this strange new place.

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