Synopsis

Jacob's Ladder Reader by Brian Keaney

The Hodder Reading Project Level 3-4 identifies blocks to progression and takes pupils from National Curriculum Level 3 to Level 4. It comprises the Teacher's Resource, Pupil's Book and 6 Readers. Reader 4, Level 4, Jacob's Ladder by Brian Keaney. Jacob wakes in the middle of a field with no recollection of how he came to be there. The only thing he can clearly remember is his name. Is he alive or dead? Jacob is then taken by Virgil, a mysterious guide, to a featureless place named Locus. He is given a grey uniform and becomes part of a mass of young people, all resigned to their fate and struggling to piece together memories of their previous existence. With two companions Jacob sets out on a journey back towards the life he has left. The journey is uncertain; there is no guide, nor any advice as to decisions that have to be made. Challenges, temptations, fearful encounters with strange characters and creatures lead him to the Palace of Remembrance, the gateway back to the real world, where a final (or is it a first?) choice awaits him. >

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

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

Lorraine Woods

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

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!
