Reviews

Nikki Gamble has used her expertise as a literacy consultant and writer on children's literature to compile this selection of over 60 short stories, chosen to meet the requirements of the NLS at KS2... The most important thing is that these stories are worth reading in their own right, whatever literary objectives they contribute to. This means that as well as being a valuable classroom resource to sit on any primary teacher's desk, alongside The Poetry Store from the same publisher, this anthology deserves to find its way into the library and onto children's own bookshelves.

Impressive in its range of authors and writing styles ... An appealing and thoughtful collection, which, as well as being a valuable teaching tool, will provide children with hours of reading pleasure, and also whet their appetite to seek out other ttles by the authors represented.
