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.

Whilst the main protagonists of the story of fictional, they interact with real persons who lived and died during that terrible summer. Children will readily identify with Sarah the heroine of the story, or her younger brother and elder sister. The text is supported by historical fact about the plague and Eyam itself. 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.

About the Author

Margaret McAllister

Margaret McAllister lives in West Yorkshire with her husband, a practicing Minister. With a background in teaching, Margaret, has always enjoyed making up stories and in the early nineties found the time to put these down on paper. Her first book A Friend for Rachel (re-titled as The Secret Mice) was published in 1997 by Oxford University Press. Margaret has since gone on to publish further novels with OUP (including many literacy titles in their Reading Tree series) as well as with Bloomsbury and Puffin.

With favourite authors including Jane Austen, C. S. Lewis, Elizabeth Goudge and Jerome K. Jerome, it is no surprise that Margaret enjoys writing historical and fantasy fiction. Margaret is known for her Mistmantle Chronicles, the first of which – Urchin of the Riding Stars – was shortlisted for the Ottakar’s Children’s Book Prize, as well as The Life Shop and High Crag Linn for Lion Children’s Books. Most recently Margaret has published the Hammy the Wonder Hamster series under the pseudonym Poppy Harris for Puffin, and The Lion Classic Aesop’s Fables for Lion (September 2011).

In addition to writing, Margaret enjoys dance, theatre, music and history, and is currently learning how to play the piano.
