Synopsis

Kingdom of the Man-eaters by John Townsend

This is one of twelve new titles for 2002, from Spirals , one of the most popular and successful series for reluctant readers. It features dynamic plots and storylines which encourage readers to pick them up again and again. It includes engaging themes without being immature or patronising and attractive cover designs in new paperback style binding are designed to motivate pupils. There are short but substantial chapters to give a sense of achievement in reading whole texts. Clearly laid out text without illustrations and activities encourages focus on reading and enables low achievers to improve at their own pace.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

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.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

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