Lucy and the Firestone Synopsis

A lively and engaging Starters title for beginner readers illustrated by acclaimed picture book artist Polly Dunbar, with a friendly text and stylish two-colour illustrations. Lucy and the Firestone is part of Walker Starters, a wonderfully fun and friendly series for beginner readers. The firestone in the Royal Lighthouse has gone out! Lucy, the Lighthouse Keeper's daughter, must follow clues in a riddle to find another one before it's too late. This is a charming and uplifting story told through a range of writing styles, including hand-lettered speech bubbles, signs and reports. The illustrations, which appear on every page, are lively and stylish, and play an active part in helping children understand the text.

Lucy and the Firestone Press Reviews

For the newly confident and, dare one say it, the newly reluctant reader, Walker breaks new ground with the Starters series. Printed throughout in two or three tones, including the text, these books are good to handle and look at, inside and out. The Times Educational Supplement Six quality books by top contemporary authors make up this lively and stylish new series... Illustrated in just two colours and using several media... the stories tackle subjects with strong child appeal. Junior Education Perfect co-ordination of text and illustration, plenty of puns and a standing ovation for the surprise ending. Not to be missed! School Librarian
