I read this book with my Year 6 class and cannot express how we all enjoyed this book. The children loved exploring the main character and his relationship between his mother, father and cousin Rose.
The writing is very clever, Harriet Goodwin uses a beautiful blend of simplicity, but subtle hints through tiny pieces of information that she provides in each chapter. It is not until you reach the end that you begin to see the whole picture.
Our class was so inspired by the book, that they wrote their own version of the story. We got in contact with Harriet Goodwin and was so pleased that she allowed us to send our stories to her. She also responded back about how she enjoyed reading them.
I cannot stress how much I would recommend not only the book, but also the author who is so kind and happy to encourage other children to write.
What a perfect children's/young adult's book this is. The text captured me and held me in its vice until the end. I felt a sense of completion at the end. Well done, Harriet Goodwin.
The characters are fun. Phoenix and Rose are portrayed as real people. Not everything is sweet and warm between them, and that is as it should be between two people who don't really know each other. Throw in a mysterious house, strange weather, a mysterious past and an even more mysterious mound and you have our story.
