Synopsis

The Haunted House by Tony Mitton

A story-based approach to phonics practice helping children to read with confidence. Laura and Paul were bored...but not for long! The Haunted House is for children in Year 2/Primary 3. Tim Beer's atmospheric illustrations work with the Tony Mitton's text to make a truly spooky story! The particular phonic focus (or, ore, oor, au, aw) is reinforced throughout the text. Each children's book includes notes on the inside back cover to support use in guided group reading sessions.

About the Author

Tony Mitton

Tony Mitton was born in 1951 in North Africa, the son of a soldier. Until he was 9 he lived mostly in Africa, Germany and Hong Kong. He went to state boarding school in Suffolk and went on to do an English Literature degree at Cambridge University. He then trained to be an English teacher before making the switch to primary school teaching.

Tony worked as a primary school teacher between the ages of 25 to 49, but for the last 13 years of that period he taught part-time. During that period he began to spend 2 or 3 days a week working at his writing, and wrote poems and stories for school reading books and also for trade market books. He now writes full-time and visits lots of schools, libraries and events to talk about his work.

He lives in a small house in the middle of Cambridge with his wife and two children, and a cat called Tiggy, who is definitely one of the family. Tony likes Cambridge but he and his wife often wish they'd settled somewhere where there are better places for walking, like cliffs and hills with good views of the landscape.

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