Rascal's Shadow

Author: Paul Jennings

Publisher: Puffin

ISBN: 9780143304104

Category: Children's stories

Page: 30

View: 3189

In this fifteenth book of the series Rascal is scared of a scary shadow. All the dragons are scared of scary shadows! But Rascal finds a way to let the light in. In Ben's world, dragons exist like dogs and fulfil all the doggy functions with dragon overlays like having two heads or being able to fly and breathe fire. These peculiarities go unremarked. Everything else in the world is normal (or as normal as Paul Jennings ever gets, let's face it). The text makes use of repetition, phonically regular words and building on meaning to aid ease of reading in these early chapter books. NB Paul Jennings discusses how to use the Rascal books with beginner readers in his guide for parents: The Reading Bug ...... and How You Can Help Your Child to Catch It Read a Rascal story to your children and before long they'll read it to you.

Bugs Bugs Bugs High or low Friends or foes Squeals or tears Phobias or fears They get in your hair They get in your eyes Find here or find them there Little bugs are found everywhere . . . This is a fun children's picture book, which adults can easily relate too and enjoy with their children. It helps children of a early age to realise that bugs are all around and hopefully teaches them something about bugs habitats and there is no real need to fear bugs. But also to be aware that some bugs can be harmful to them. I have used the word Bugs loosely in this book and this needs to be taken into account when considering this book. Some of the creatures I have used are not true Bugs, but are generally considered as Bugs or Insects by the general public. An example of this is my use of spiders, which are not true Bugs.
