Go Away, Boys! by Michael Lawson Brown

In this story, the village boys' mischevious behaviour at the river prevents the girls from finishing the clothes washing. Then the girls come up with a cunning plan...About the Author Michael Lawson Brown was born and educated in England. He worked as a teacher there before settling in Africa in 1965. After many years as a Teacher Educator in Mutare, Zimbabwe, he retired to write textbooks and stories for children. He also writes plays for the local theatre. Michael Lawson Brown is married, and has two grown-up sons. About JAWS Starters JAWS Starters are simple books for young readers. The series provides interesting and beautifully illustrated stories to encourage children to read for pleasure. Jaws Starters books are at four levels, starting with Wordbooks at the foundation level. Level 1 is for children who have just begun to read by themselves, whilst Levels 2 and 3 use progressively wider vocabulary and more complex sentence structures. The language in each of the books has been carefully controlled at each level to make reading easier. JAWS Starters have pictures on every page to help the pupils follow the story. At level 1, pupils can follow the story from the pictures alone. Children can read JAWS Starters silently, either in class or at home. There are activities at the end of each book, on page 16, which pupils can be asked to complete after they have read the story. If a word in an African language is used in the story, there will be a note of its meaning on this page too.

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!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

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

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.
