I am half way through The Accidental Stowaway already and I can't put it down! It is set around 1910 and tells the story of an orphan who finds herself on a luxurious ship as a stowaway. I can't wait to find out what happens to her as the ship sails to America. I absolutely love the way the author gives you a real flavour of that period of history.
I haven't started reading the Lost Whale yet but I can't wait to read it. I read Hannah Gold's first book to the current Year 4's. It was called The Last Bear. It was the most magical book to read to a class of children and so I'm excited to read her second book The Lost Whale. From the titles, you might guess that Hannah Gold is passionate about animals and caring for our planet.
Watch this space and when I've read this book I can tell you what I think of it...without giving anything away of course!!!
