Description

The series appeals to independent readers 5-7 years old as they begin to read chapter books. It’s also suitable for reading aloud to younger children or for classroom use. Similar in size and market to series by Sally Rippin, Yvette Poshoglian and Susannah McFarlane, Eugene’s Island is unique in offering a New Zealand setting and a gentle introduction to environmental concerns, all within simple, enjoyable tales.

A large portion of the language used in the writing is from the ‘basic sight word’ lists used in many New Zealand primary schools.

Reviews

Read NZ ~ “Although aimed at emergent readers it still delivers real emotion and problems that readers will understand and identify with. Eugene is an admirable, likeable character, coming up with a solution to a problem and young readers will relate to his highs and lows.”

Jessie Eyre, teacher ~ “Eugene is a relatable character that I know my students will love getting to know more. We can’t wait to read about his future adventures.”
