Synopsis

Copycat Copycat by Catherine MacPhail

I blame everything that happened on my own good nature. I took her under my wing. She was plain and frumpy and I said to my friend Indira, Let's make Mimi our next project. Big mistake. Chantelle Morgan is the most popular girl in school. Well, at least she was until Mimi came along. When Chantelle and her best friend Indira take clumsy, clueless new girl Mimi under their wing, Mimi takes all of their advice. She wears her uniform like Chantelle's; she has her hair cut like Chantelle's; she even starts to talk like Chantelle. And at first Mimi seems so pleased, so grateful. Gradually, though, Chantelle begins to suspect she has created a monster...*Suitable for reading age 10 years. * Help Key Stage 3 students move from Level 4c to Level 4a in reading. *Support comprehension with the engaging, age-appropriate illustrations. *Encourage shared and guided reading using the ready-made tasks and discussion points on the activity pages at the back of the book. * Suitable for Key Stage 3 students with a reading age of 10 years and above.

Reviews

All students said they liked the book, especially the characters and the first person narrative, which they found funny. They really liked the school setting. Interestingly the boys all enjoyed the book and were not at all bothered that the main characters were girls. They said this was because the characters were interesting and they were dealing with issues which both boys and girls face. Fiona Dyson, SENCO at Southfields Academy, London
