High interest, low vocabulary readers
When Kenny and Nicky rescue a rook left for dead, Kenny is determined to keep it alive. Nicky doubts the scruffy bird will make it, but then Nicky has plenty else to worry about – a school bully, his first… love, and the fact that everything is about to go very, very wrong. This book is particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers with an interest age of 13+ and a reading age of 8+. Grades 2-4 and older readers. 2017.
