Oxford Reading Tree: Levels 10-12: Treetops True Stories: Sea Empress Disaster by Chris Ogden

TreeTops True Stories are exciting, motivating non-fiction books which will broaden your pupils' reading experience. They are part of a structured reading programme for juniors. A very direct and personal account of events surrounding the grounding, and subsequent breaking up of the Sea Empress in Milford Haven, Wales in February 1996. Ceri is a fictional 10-year old girl who takes us through the events as she writes her diary. However, the disaster itself and its aftermath are very real and Ceri is representative of many children whose families whole way of life was almost destroyed. Photos and captions combine with the touchingly naive artwork style of new OUP illustrator, Karen Edward. Books contain inside cover notes to support children in their reading. Help with childrens reading development also available at www.oxfordowl.co.uk. This book is also available as part of a mixed pack of 6 different books or a class pack of 36 books of the same Oxford Reading Tree level.

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

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
