Oxford Playscripts: Johnny & the Dead by Terry Pratchett, Stephen Briggs

An engaging classroom playscript. Johnny Maxwell, visiting the local cemetery, discovers that he can see the dead. He can talk to them, too - much to his friends' amazement. So when the news breaks that the local council plans to sell the cemetery to a property developer, Johnny learns that there are some things in life (and death) that are worth fighting for...


We are currently doing this in our English class and it is amazing! Reading it as a play is just as exciting as the book. It contains most of the original humour and text. All of our class really enjoy it! * 5 star Amazon review *

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 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!

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

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

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
