The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is an absolutely enchanting picture story book with a magical yet haunting story involving a boy who is drawn into a tree by something. That something turns out to be a spirite who wants to play and show the boy his world. This is a lovely book for parents to share particularly as the ending really pulls at the heartstrings. It's been written, illustrated and published by the author and is beautifully packaged in a large format.

Synopsis

The Little White Sprite by Gillian McClure

A boy thinks there is something living inside the old hollow tree that stands in the park. It is only when he is pulled through a hole and finds himself inside the tree that the boy discovers what it is – a little white Sprite. They play together in the Sprite’s world inside the tree but when it’s time for the boy to return, the Sprite doesn’t want him to leave…

Reviews

[The Little White Sprite] is so calm and really attractive in that the reader doesn't want it to stop, then the ending isn't quite what you thought it might be. After all the trends, especially children's, that I've enjoyed I'm still delighted when something that stops me comes into view. Please accept my belated thanks for this surprise.' Margaret Meek, chairman of CLPE - The Centre for Literacy in Primary Education

‘This beautiful book captures perfectly a child’s sense of a haunted world all around him…’ Jill Paton Walsh

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
