Synopsis

Will's Boomerang by Stella Gurney

Twisters is a great series of first reading books made up of real stories with a beginning, a middle and an end, and turn-the-page appeal. The stories don't exceed 50 words and are ideal for first readers, covering a range of genres to support literacy requirements at foundation stage. These include humorous stories, fantasy stories, rhyming stories and stories from a range of cultures. They are accompanied by bright, colourful pictures, which will reassure the most reluctant of readers and help develop visual literacy skills.Will has a boomerang and he's not afraid to use it. Boomerangs come back when you throw them - don't they? Maybe not. So when Will's boomerang gets lost, he sets off to look for it. Watch out, Will! It's dangerous out there!

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

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