Class Novel

Our  class novel to promote reading  is  called The Wreck of the Zanzibar by Michael Morpurgo. This book was the Smarties winner in 2013 (Scotland).  This is the blurb: Life on the Scilly Isles in 1907 is bleak and full of hardship.  Laura’s twin brother, Billy, disappears and then a storm devastates everything.  It seems there is little hope… that is until the sailing ship the Zanzibar is wrecked on the island’s rocks and everything changes….

 Doesn't it sound exciting?!
