Green Fingers by Paul May

Troubled Kate is hostile to the idea of moving to the country, suspecting that the family are only moving because of her problems at school. But everything goes wrong from the moment they move into the old farmhouse out in the middle of nowhere - Mum and Dad arguing so much that Mum moves back to London, school just as much of a problem as ever and she still can't read properly...Then Kate discovers a reason to try again: the abandoned garden behind their new home...

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

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

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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

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!
