The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest Age 5-8 Award-winning Michael Morpurgo presents the very real dilemmas of life and death on a farm and how they impact on children. Chris and Lisa live on a farm but when Minikid, a child from the city, comes to stay he has a lot to learn about animals and how to treat them! Like a young bull himself, Minikid loves playing with the orphaned baby bull the children look after but he is not tamed by farm life and Chris and Lisa can't help being pleased when he goes home!
About the Little Gems series: Little Gems are in a gorgeous new chunky format, with high-spec production including coloured endpapers and jacketed flaps with activities. Additional features include high quality cream paper, Barrington Stoke font and illustrations on every page. They are perfect for 5-8's. These quality stories promote good reading practice for all newly independent readers.
Minikid by Michael Morpurgo
The characters from Snug and The Castle in the Field return with more countryside adventures when Chris and Lisa's cousin comes to stay. At school they call him Bullet, but Chris and Lisa call him Minikid. He's only come for a visit, but wherever he goes, trouble seems to follow. From orphan calves to wasps' nests, Minikid is drawn to any new sight the farm has to offer, making for some interesting learning experiences!
