the Carpet People By Terry Pratchett,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Carpet People (Audio Cassette)
As a teacher of ages 9 to 11 I think this book has enormous potential as a shared reading text for use in the classroom. Pratchett takes an everyday item, a carpet, and turns it into something magical. The use of language and his descriptions are ideal for younger readers and having read many of pratchetts other books, including the terrific Wee Free Men and A Hat Full of Sky, I think this is an ideal starter for anyone who may not of read any Terry Pratchett before as it isn't as complex as some of his other books nor are the descritptions as detailed.
I can't wait to share this book with my students and I would recommend other teachers to read this book too. We'll certainly be doing lots of creative writing and story telling based on this book and hopefully writing our own answers to questions such as `What is Fray?'.
