Not known as a children's writer. James Patterson brings excellent style and immagination with this book.
We see it through the eyes of a child and travel with her through her experiences into adulthood. We witness personnal struggles between the family unit. Although situated in America the emotion and feelings are universal. I brought this book as a fan of the writer and mistakenly thought it would be an easy change. Instead so impressed by the sheer imagination and development of each chararcter, not to forget the pure descriptive genius of the book. I allowed my 11 year old daughter to read it.
Her writing content and richness of her own essay writing improved almost overnight.
Since then I have bought two more copies for family and niece for Christmas. I reccommend this book for any one who wants to see writing at it's best.
Chapters can be used to convey emotive, descriptive and dialogue for any child at 11 plus stage.
Sundays at Tiffany's is the kind of book you can re read foreverSundays at Tiffany's
