Synopsis

Bear and Turtle and the Great Lake Race by Andrew Peters

Everyone knows how rude and grumpy bears can be if they don't get enough sleep! When a bad-tempered bear trips over a tiny turtle, no-one can foresee the consequence. When Turtle challenges Bear to a race along the lakeshore, Bear is confident about the outcome. But Turtle is smarter than Bear can imagine...Celebrated writer and story-teller Andrew Fusek Peters brings out all the comedy and ingenuity of this traditional Native American trickster tale.

Reviews

I think that the book is saying that bigger is not always better and that if you use your brains you can outsmart people. The Bear thought that he would win but the Turtle used his brains. However, I did really like Bear and I thought that the turtles were cheating because there were so many of them. I really enjoyed the book and the pictures were nice. I will read this again and again. -- Amy, 7 Betty Bookmark 20060301

About the Author

Andrew Peters

Andrew Peters, the very tall author of Ravenwood, has been climbing and talking to trees since he was small - so the story of Ravenwood has been a long time in development!

Author of over sixty previous books, Andrew says: 'Writing Ravenwood was like being in the driving seat of the best ride ever, especially as I had never attempted to concoct an adventure on this scale before! I have always had a vivid imagination and I love escaping into other worlds.

The challenge with Ravenwood was to write a fun, thought-provoking, but ultimately epic adventure as well as to create a whole new world from scratch: a foreign island of mile-tall giant trees, suddenly threatened by an empire of glass and steel that is hungry for the island's wood. The dwellers of the treetop kingdom don't know it, but theirs are the only trees left in the whole world where wood has become more precious than gold.'

Andrew lives in Shropshire with his wife and two children. He's a keen photographer and squash player, and just can't help jumping in cold rivers and lakes at most times of the year (except when there's ice!)

Ravenwood was released in May 2011.
