Synopsis

The Tinderbox Band 15/Emerald by Penny Dolan

When Jack finds an old tinderbox, he doesn't think much of it, but the fact that someone else wants it so much makes him question his value. Indeed, as his wishes come true, there's only one last thing that he really wants. But will he be able to outwit the King and Queen and win the heart of the Princess before it's too late? Emerald/Band 15 books provide a widening range of genres including science fiction and biography, prompting more ways to respond to texts. Text type: A traditional tale Curriculum links: English: fairy stories, myths and legends

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.
