Synopsis

Trumpets of Happiness and Other Stories An Early Reader by Brien Masters

Following on from his popular first reader Patter-Paws the Fox, Brien Masters presents us with twelve further stories for school children. This time, however, his exuberant tales are related more closely to the modern, urban experience of the town-dweller. We are introduced to many new and delightful characters, both animal and human, such as Rory the guide-dog and his master Scotty, Trevor the puzzled postman, Wriggly-Caterpillar, and Fudge-fed Bee. Once again, the narratives are complemented by the inspiring illustrations of Brian Gold. As with his earlier book, the author has taken great care in crafting structure and style, with the intention of building up the child's confidence in reading. The stories are graded according to definite principles, and the visual element of the text has also been carefully considered.

About the Author

BRIEN MASTERS' career has included two professions, in music and education, the latter the focus of his PhD. In addition, he has pursued a decades-long interest in the anthroposophical approach to karma and reincarnation, which has resulted in lectures and workshops on Schubert, Wagner, Bocklin and Garibaldi, and published articles on Emerson and Oliphant. After various appointments, which included lengthy periods serving as Choirmaster and Organist in the Anglican Church, Chair of the Steiner Schools Fellowship, Editor of Child and Man / Steiner Education and Director of the London Waldorf Teacher Training Seminar, Brien Masters is now largely retired, though still lecturing and writing.

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!

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!

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