Synopsis

Uncle Tom's Pterodactyl by Colin West

The second set of four in this lively new series of comic strip novels for younger readers now available in paperback. Comix are aimed at 7-9 year olds, particularly though not exclusively boys, and children who find reading hard work. The subject matter is pacy and exciting and the main characters are usually boys, and there is plenty of action and dialogue to keep the story moving. Feisty heros and heroines use quick-thinking tactics to get them out of all kinds of scrapes and dilemmas. The series is aimed at developing reading ability and the text is integrated with illustrations using the comic strip conventions of speech bubbles, thought bubbles and sound effects. Established authors have written a variety of tales - adventure, science fiction and fantasy, comedy and football stories. All the titles have been illustrated by the best strip-cartoon artists around. The resulting combination is a visually-exciting series that should get any 7-9 year-old reading no matter how reluctant they have been to pick up a book in the past.

About the Author

Colin published his first collections of nonsense verse in 1975, shortly after graduating from The Royal College of Art, and since then has written over 60 children's books. His talent for off-message, anarchic laughter has brought him many fans, including America's Children's Laureate, Kenn Nesbitt, who calls him a master of the art of humorous poetry for children. Colin lives in Battle, East Sussex. Visit his website at www.colinwest.com

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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

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!

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!

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
