The Rise of

Teachers’ Notes!

Your Response?

AS one of eight judges for this year's Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) awards, Michelle Prawer knows she carries a tremendous responsibility.

  • "We are looking at story, character development, book design, the graphics, if the graphics match the text, and the integration between the words and pictures.
  • "We are looking at whether or not it's a stand-alone book. For example, if you have the third in the series, it has to stand on its own to get the award.''

“The pencil sketches are wonderfully right for this text, lending it a sense of immediacy and movement… Written in lyrical prose, this delightful tale captures the essence of the bathtime experience. Every parent and child will relate to this charming book. Highly recommended for preschoolers (and their parents).”

Teachers’ Notes – The Last Viking

Synopsis

Josh is a nervous kid and when he gets sent to stay with his grandparents, he has even

more reason to worry. He really loves them, but his last visit wasn’t a great success; Pop

has a passion for scary stories that Josh doesn’t share. This time though, Pop introduces

Josh to the Viking legends and Josh is hooked. He decides he’ll become a Viking, because

they’re so brave and strong – just like him. When Josh is tormented by the local bullies he

channels his inner Viking, with a little help from the Norse gods, to overcome their threat.

Themes

The Last Viking is about courage, imagination, determination, and colander helmets. It is

about learning to face your fears and finding the courage within to tackle them; it is about

the comfort and friendship a pet can provide, the power of family and the magic of using

your own imagination to create fantastic fun. Of course, it’s also about Vikings.

Writing Style

The Last Viking is written in the third person, present tense, but much of the story is

conveyed in dialogue. Carefully placed throughout the book are textless picture panels

where the story is told in illustrations alone.

“Children who know adults who read for pleasure take it for granted that

reading is a valuable and worthwhile activity”

  • The Children's Bookshop
  • Book Clubs for Adults at The Children's Bookshop are booming! We now have about 60 avid readers who meet as part of 4 different groups, each group meeting one Tuesday night per month. What has been a stand out read in recent months? Probably the biggest response to a novel over the past twelve months has been "The Street Sweeper"- a brilliant, layered novel that sparked great responses from groups. A masterpiece? It is certainly a damn fine novel! Other past reads include "The Sense of an Ending", "The Paris Wife", "The Hare with the Amber Eyes" and "All That I Am". We are looking forward to lots of grear reads in 2012!
