Synopsis

The Signalman: Two Ghost Stories Band 14/Ruby by Penny Dolan

Discover these two creepy, ghostly stories originally written by Charles Dickens, retold here by Penny Dolan. In `The Signalman' messages warn of horrors to come, but will they be understood before it's too late? And in `The Face on the Train' a chance meeting inspires an artist to draw a portrait, but was the encounter chance after all?* Ruby/Band 14 books give increasing opportunities for children to develop their skills of inference and deduction.

About the Author

Penny Dolan

Penny Dolan is well known for a host of books for younger readers. A Boy Called M.O.U.S.E, published by Bloomsbury in October 2010, is her first novel for older readers.

So she became a primary school teacher, where the things she most enjoyed teaching were drama, art, history and English. Luckily, she attended a writing course for teachers where, encouraged by authors Dennis Hamley and Jan Mark, she rediscovered her own writing. Eventually Penny gave up her enormous school painting table and left teaching to follow her “author” dream.

Penny lives in North Yorkshire and has one cat, two grown up children and three untidy desks.

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
