“Thinking is more powerful than many people realise. It is what we think, after all, that shapes our lives and our world. You have to do something as well, of course, but it always starts with the thinking.” Andrew Norriss

Thoughts on a Challenging Read…

Those of you who have read Andrew Norriss’ books will know that they are enjoyed by any age. There is no swearing or violence, nothing gritty or urban. Here are his thoughts on challenging reads and how Jessica’s Ghost is a little different to his previous books. With our thanks to Kirsty.

Thoughts on a Challenging Read ….
You know how, when you pick up a book and read the blurb on the back, there are certain words which act as flashing red lights warning you that this one’s not for you? more


Jessica’s Ghost – a book review for #worldbookday

Originally posted on Cubik's Rube:

There’s a new book released today – on World Book Day, no less! – called Jessica’s Ghost, by Andrew Norriss. It’s a book which you should buy for any young people you know, but also read it first yourself before you give it to them, so that you get to read it before they do. It’s the Book of the Week over at Books for Keeps, and hey, I’ve just decided it’s Book of the Week right here at Cubik’s Rube as well. That’s two major plaudits in one paragraph! The buzz around this thing is electrifying.

It’s the latest book from a successful and long-standing children’s author with an impressively hefty back catalogue, who’s won various awards for his writing over the years, but more importantly is also really good at it.

(Any resemblance between his surname and my own is purely non-coincidental.)

So, here’s the…

Andrew Norriss–The Unluckiest Boy in the World (2006) [audio book]

[LISTENED TO: August 2014] The Unluckiest Boy in the World

unlkcyMy kids enjoy just about any audio book, but I try to find ones that seem funny (and age appropriate for both of them).  For reasons I’m unclear about, it seems like most of the audio books that are age appropriate are British or Australian–either they release more audio books, or that’s just what my library orders.  So we wind up listening to a lot of British readers (I think my kids can tell a British accent now).

I didn’t know anything about this book (or its author) but the title sounded great and the age was appropriate.  We listened to it on our trip to Michigan, and it was a perfect length to fit near the end of our arrival.  Boy did we like this book.  There are so many funny unexpected moments.  And the story has…

Children’s Authors love to get together

 

Authors by their nature of work do not often see each other so when they do they have a lot to talk about. They talk about their latest books, unless like #thewriter they say nothing about them until they appear in print; they talk about their agents; they talk about their publishers; they talk about school visits; They have all  have so much to say about school visits that I’m thinking of collecting all the anecdotes and publishing them myself!

Yesterday evening after having  spent the day inspiring children and teachers about books and reading, and in turn being inspired by amazing librarians, two children’s authors met up to compare notes, whilst I sat and listened. Andrew Norriss and HL Dennis love the chance to catch up and share words of encouragement and support for each other.
