Uniquely blending a fictional story with fact boxes about social history at the time the tale is loved by children and adults alike. Teachers will find the facts at the end of the story of particular use when studying World War 2 as part of the Key Stage 2 curriculum. The book has also been used in Key Stage 1 when children have been looking at the topic of Pets. Especially as Spike is based on the authors own Vizsla with the same name!
One teacher says;
“Thank you ever so much for the copy of your book. It has already engaged one of my less excited readers, who as I write this is flicking through pages in sheer silence.”
Marianne is available to visit primary schools on the Isle of Wight for readings and quiz based workshops on the topic of World War 2 at no charge thanks to the success of her crowdfunding bid.
