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.











About the Author

Mike Gould has written over 150 books for students and teachers, including plays, stories and the occasional poem. He lives in Sussex and divides his time between writing, being taken for a walk by his dog Freddie, and trying out his ideas on his three children and wife who pretend to find them interesting. His favourite novels are Bleak House by Charles Dickens and SE Hinton's The Outsiders. He's quite partial to poems about animals, nature and bad weather.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
