Book Description

5 July 2010 Banana Books

A gripping story from Kevin Crossley-Holland for Egmont’s red banana series.

Every day Annie walks by the lonely marsh from her remote cottage to school. Only in winter, when the wind howls in the trees, is Annie ever afraid. Her sister Willa is pregnant and Annie is overjoyed when she comes home to have her baby. Annie tells Willa the names of local plants and Willa tells Annie about the ghost, murdered by highwaymen, who is said to haunt the old forge nearby. Then, on a terrible night, with the phone lines down, Willa goes into labour. Annie is terrified of the ghost, but knows she must brave the storm to fetch help. As she ventures into the night, a horseman swings into view. He offers to take Annie to town. But who is this horseman?

Red bananas are chapter books for newly fluent readers, suitable for NC Level 3 readers. They are carefully designed illustrated books for both entertainment and education, supporting children’s understanding of how to read longer books. Red bananas introduce similes and wordplay to encourage an understanding of more literary concepts.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is awesome! 4 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback
We read this book in class at school and I really enjoyed it. My favourite bit is when the man on horseback comes and collects the girl. At the end the author leaves a mysterious cliffhanger. When I grow up I will write Storm 2.
