The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the 6-8 Nestle Silver Award 2007. As with all Anne Fine novels for whatever age, this one would be good for anyone of 6 or 7 upwards, you get great writing coupled with a great storyline. When Boris is landed with the job of being the new boy’s interpreter, he little realises just how much trouble he is in for. Ivan may speak no English but that’s not going to stop him from making his mark. Can Boris keep Ivan under control especially when he threatens to make his classmates slaves?
Ivan The Terrible by Anne Fine
It's Ivan's first day at his new school, and Boris is told to look after him, and translate for him, because Ivan can only speak Russian. After all, St Edmund's is a civilized school. Only problem is, Ivan isn't civilized. So when Ivan starts greeting people as 'lowly shivering worms', and asking for words in English like 'crush' and 'mutilate', Boris realises that he's going to have his work cut out for him. And that's just the start of the day... Little does he know that Ivan will leave a lasting influence, and that he himself will never enjoy listening to nursery rhymes ever again.
