Synopsis

Alan and the Animals by Evelyn Foster

Alan loves animals - he loves bats! He has ten rats and ten wild cats. But where does he keep them all? Find out in this rhyming story. The Tiddlers series features fun stories with a word count of fewer than 50 words for children who are just starting to read. A word list at the start of the book allows you to check the child's ability to decode and understand each word before reading, providing a fully supported first reading experience. And a puzzle at the end of the story encourages rereading for pleasure.

About the Author

Evelyn Foster has worked as an actor and storyteller specialising in folklore and fairytale. She has run workshops on myth at the British Museum including spooky sleep-overs next to the Egyptian mummies ! She has also done drama with disabled children and voice and confidence coaching with teenagers. She has read to the blind, produced columns for magazines and judged writing competitions in care homes. She has played good Shakesperean heroines, evil enchantresses ... and quite a lot of fairy godmothers ! Her stories, some original fairytales and some re-tellings, are mostly about mermaids and giants. They are designed to give children a love of reading and a passion for the past - as well as hope for the future. She has not yet seen either a mermaid or a giant - but she lives in hope!

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