The Prompter by Chris D'Lacey


The Prompter by Chris D'Lacey

There's no way hyperactive Robin can play a part in the school production of Peter Pan. Or is there? For Robin's amazing memory gets him the job of prompter - and eventually a starring role that leads to a hilarious performance. A funny, delightful tale with appeal to all young thespians (and anyone else who would like to see their headmistress chased by a crocodile-)


Touching and funny Leicester Mercury A lively story, some great characterisation, some colourful metaphors and lots of dialogue Junior

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