5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulously funny 21 Jan 2011
Jeremy Strong is a fabulously funny writer of children's books for the primary age range. Really glad to see his work in print by Barrington Stoke with their sensory friendly print. Barrington Stoke use a clear, simple and easy to read printing font. Their books are printed on buff paper to prevent glare and aid reading for children and teenagers with Dyslexia, Irlens or scoptic sensitivity. They may help children with ASD too, who are able to develop reading skills. Having said this, they are not just for children with sensory difficulties - all children can read them - and do - and enjoy them. They are not overtly "scheme books" and look cool - like a proper book. The 4U2read books are usually aimed at the Primary age range. This book, like many of the Barrington Stoke books, is short, punchy, and economic to aid reading pleasure for those who tire easilly when reading. I find these short stories great to use in class - as many children are able to access and read them in 1 or 2 sessions and talk about their stories. This particular story is a laugh-out-loud book, about what happens when Mad Iris (an ostrich) invades your school - how would you keep that secret? Lock her in the broom cupboard? A very funny book.

Brought for my reluctant reader grandaughter age 8 ( reading age 6+) She really enjoyed reading it and the format of the text and cream colour pages have helped her to feel confident about reading. Have ordered 2 more Barrington Stoke books plus a dictionary.
