Synopsis

The Winter of Magical Letters by Elizabeth Dye

Sam is not only the smallest boy in his class, he is skinny, has red hair and struggles with school work. He has a very strange home life, living part of the time with his rather batty grandma, and part of the time with his morose and sad dad. He puts up with bullying from Toughie Wilson and his mates because he doesn't know what else to do. But when he starts finding strange scraps of shiny paper inscribed with meaningless letters, the adventures he goes through give him the courage to beat Toughie at his own game. If you remember your chemistry lessons, you might realise before Sam does that the letters are not 'magical' in quite the way he things they are. This is a celebration of science.

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

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.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

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