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!
