First News review

There’s something magical about book reviews directly from children themselves. This one appeared in First News, the most widely-read publication for kids in the UK. It’s by ten-year-old Maggie Cole from Dorset, a budding writer and a wolf lover herself.

I wasn’t surprised to learn that Maggie has been asked for more contributions – the review is beautifully written. Alpha the wolf thinks she’s a brilliant ‘cub’ reporter!

Have you read The Mirror of Pharos? I’d love to hear what you think. You can send me a message via my Contact page.
