Independent Reading 11

By Enid Richemont
Illustrated by Shahab Shamshirsaz

  • Hardback
  • £8.99

This story is part of Reading Champion, a series carefully linked to book bands to encourage independent reading skills, developed with Dr Sue Bodman and Glen Franklin of UCL Institute of Education (IOE)

When Sanjay is given a magic bowl that produces food by a kind goddess, he and his family need never be hungry again. Then the greedy Maharajah takes the bowl from him. But the Maharajah cannot control the magic and the food keeps coming... This traditional tale clearly echoes with 'The Magic Porridge Pot'.

Reading Champion offers independent reading books for children to practise and reinforce their developing reading skills.

Fantastic, original stories are accompanied by engaging artwork and a reading activity. Each book has been carefully graded so that it can be matched to a child's reading ability, encouraging reading for pleasure.

Biographical Notes

Enid Richemont (Author)
Although I've lived for most of my life in north London, I was born and grew up in South Wales. My mum read to me a great deal,and I think it was from her that I developed my love of language. I also enjoyed drawing and painting, and eventually won a scholarship to study at Dublin College of Art.

When I came back from Eire, I first worked as a teacher in a Rudolf Steiner school. Then I came to London and took a number of strange jobs, including reading aloud to a blind writer and typing out his manuscript. The typewriter I'd hired to do this had some paid-for time left, so I used it to write a short story which I sold to a women's magazine. It became the first of many, and the beginning of a successful career. While my children were growing up, I stopped writing, and started a small design business, making screen-printed puppet theatres, flying saucers and playhouses that looked like medieval battle tents.

Work took us to Paris, where we lived for two years, and where, incidentally, I first encountered the Romanian gipsy girl who features in my novel, FOR MARITSA WITH LOVE (Simon&Schuster).

My first children's book, THE TIME TREE (Walker Books) grew out of a story I told my daughter and her best friend to pass the time on a very long walk (the original idea came from a TV programme I'd watched about teaching children with hearing problems). The girls begged me to write it down so that they could read it for themselves - so I did. This book is currently being marketed as a film series by Wild Thyme Productions.

TO SUMMON A SPIRIT (Walker Books), was one of the Pick of the Year titles listed in the Children's Book Award. I'm now published in the USA and Australia as well as the UK, and my work has been translated into Danish, German and Japanese.

My first book for Franklin Watts was PLOP CITY, a book about bird poo which continues to be loved, especially by small boys. I have two copies of the Arabic version

The Case of the Evil Engineer

Girls Excelling at Maths and Science! Four friends use their smarts to solve mysteries.Four 12-year old girls from different countries meet as room-mates at a prestigious international summer camp for young scientists in California. The camp is sponsored by Vance Tech - one of the world's biggest tech companies. At first, despite having a love of maths and science in common, the girls view each other as competitors - a big prize for the best robot will be awarded at the end of the camp, at a launch party for Vance Tech's newest wearable tech product. At first it seems exciting to be trialling the new bracelets, until the girls begin to realise that they are actually guinea pigs themselves! Someone is plotting to sabotage the award ceremony using the campers' robots. The implications aren't just mind-blowing - they are literally explosive! The girls form a secret organisation called G.E.M.S. (standing for Girls Excelling at Maths and Science - and also their initials!) and use their science smarts to expose the evil engineer behind the sabotage.
