Synopsis

Amazing Archie by Lynne Benton

Amazing Archie is an exciting story for wildlife fans and budding environmentalists who are beginning to read independently. It is perfect for children aged 4+ who are reading at book band blue 4. Archie the bat loves to do tricks. The other bats think he is silly. But Archie's dare-devil flying performances might just save their home! The Froglets series is perfect for children aged 5-7 who are reading on their own, with fun stories of no more than 200 words. A reading game at the end of each book encourages retelling the story and boosting vocabulary. Compiled in consultation with Catherine Glavina, Early Years Course Leader, The Centre for Professional Education, University of Warwick.

About the Author

Lynne Benton (Author) Lynne Benton was born in Bournemouth, but moved to Bath at 18 to train as a teacher, and has lived there ever since. She has taught in several primary schools in the area, as well as working as pianist and receptionist in a Dancing school and bringing up four children. In 1982 she and her husband, Robin, a fellow-teacher and composer, co-wrote a musical play for primary schools based on the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece (still, happily, in print) but it was only when their children began leaving home for university that she began writing seriously. In 1996 she was a prizewinner in the Independent's Children's Story of the Year competition, and since then has had several fiction books published. As well as writing longer novels for older children she enjoys writing humorous bite-size stories for younger ones. She welcomes invitations to go into schools and talk to children about her books, since it keeps her in touch with her readers, who she finds a continual source of inspiration.
