Synopsis

This Boy by Pippa Goodhart

A supernatural love story that touches on the First World War. Kerry hates her new school. She doesn't think much of the new house either, as it's full of strange noises. While waiting by the old war memorial for her mum to come home, she meets a boy. He seems nice, but very sad about something. And he's dressed a bit oddly too... *Help Key Stage 3 students move from Level 3c to Level 3b in reading. *Support comprehension with the atmospheric, age-appropriate illustrations. *Contextualise the story using the double-page about the First World War. *Encourage shared and guided reading using the ready-made tasks and discussion points on the activity pages at the back of the book.

Reviews

`Boys were very excited and I haven't seen boys of this ability as engaged in their reading. Students had no idea what a gladiator was and were impressed when they found out. All wanted to be gladiators by the end of it! Much better than the competition.









`I like reading stories about people like me.
