Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Every child need a Bloomsbury Young Reader. Fun, stretching, just the right length, full of adventurous vocabulary and punctuation, [with] tips to support the parent or carer at home or the teacher who needs inspiration at the end of a busy day. -- Julie-Ann McCulloch, Specialist EAL Teacher, Stockport Local Authority I like that the books do have messages and characters you can empathise with, but I also like that they are a light and breezy read, that there is enjoyable, playful language, humour and that they are not dull! -- Katie Potter, mother of Bethan, aged 6
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)

Author's Bio

Jane Lawes grew up in Surrey, and spent her childhood dancing and practicing gymnastics in the garden. She studied American Literature with Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, where she spent three years reading good books and writing stories. Her first series of children's fiction, Gym Stars, was published in 2012, and her Ballet Stars series was in 2015. When she's not writing fiction, she works in the publishing team at the Royal Opera House, putting together performance programmes for The Royal Ballet. Sarah Jennings has been illustrating children's books since graduating in 2013. At a young age she discovered a love of drawing and has been scribbling and sketching ever since. Sarah enjoys combining traditional and digital techniques to create her illustrations and particularly loves designing characters. She currently lives in London and works from her home studio in the company of her very cheeky three-legged cat!
