Part of the Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Reflect Series

Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Reflect: Oxford Level 20: Selkie Summer Synopsis

It's Lily's last summer before the terrifying move to high school, but instead of hanging out with her primary-school friends at home in Edinburgh, she's stuck on an island in a cottage in the pouring rain. Her parents are completely immersed in their archaeological dig, so Lily is alone with her worries about September - until she meets Jess. Soon, while her parents are making discoveries about the island's ancient past, Lily is discovering a new best friend - and the island transforms from a lonely wet rock into a land of thrilling storms, wide-eyed seals and Viking legends. 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.
