Synopsis

Roy The Eagle by Kate O'Sullivan, David Harfield

Engagingly told in verse with colourful and forceful illustrations, Roy The Eagle was an instant hit when trialed with children aged 4-8, although it can be read to younger children out loud or read by older children on their own. A teacher at one primary school described the book as brilliant and one of the children said 'It is a story isn't it, because eagles don't wear glasses do they?' Another school has used the book to encourage a young girl who is refusing to wear her glasses. The teacher is very impressed and is looking for a cuddly toy eagle they can put glasses on! Children can follow Roy's adventures as he overcomes all kinds of obstacles to discover that the very things that make him different from his friends are what brings them closer together.

Reviews

Wow, quite simply perfect! A fantastic book with a strong message, illustrated beautifully with the cutest story! I would love to see more in the range and have my fingers crossed that there will be, I am yet to find a child or adult for that matter that it does not go down well with - a must for every decent book shelf/ school, highly recommended!
