Donna Fawcett, KS2 teacher: “Can I just say an enormous well done for writing such a fantastic book 'A Tiger too many' you had us on the edge of our seats! Grace read the book at bedtime over three nights and that is good going for a bit of a reluctant reader! I must tell you that your book then inspired her to read and read and she has not stopped - so thank you for that!”

Judith Corcoran, KS2 teacher, Chessington: A Tiger Too Many proved to be an excellent starting point for the children’s learning about World War 2. From the opening paragraph they were hooked into the story and their interest in the war was captured. The pace and suspense of the story maintained their enthusiasm and the constant references to the events of the war and the way in which it impacted upon everyday life enabled their learning to be extended. The book sparked a wealth of writing opportunities.”
