Synopsis

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-)

Reviews

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

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!

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.
