Part of the Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Reflect SeriesWrite A Review
A powerful novel about identity and loyalty, and reaching a hand out across cultural divides. Aithne is a twelve-year-old girl - a Briton - who wears the silver moon of a Wise Woman. Castus is a boy the same age, a Roman servant brought up to think of the Britons as barbarians not worth sparing. When Castus is sent to infiltrate the camp of the Britons, these two children from completely different worlds meet and form an unlikely alliance, before being swept into Boudicca's rebellion. Reflect is a series of emotionally powerful books with realistic settings, carefully crafted to promote thoughtful discussions and develop higher-level reading comprehension. Written by top childrens authors and developed with Literacy expert and Series Editor Nikki Gamble, these are books you can trust to engage, entertain and support childrens personal development. The books are finely levelled, making it easy to match every child to stories with the right depth and complexity for them, and helping them to progress. Each book contains inside cover notes to help children deepen their understanding and support their reading comprehension. Teaching notes on Oxford Owl offer cross-curricular links to relationships education and support literacy skills.
