Wolf Hill is an exciting series from Roderick Hunt, illustrated by Alex Brychta, creators of the Oxford Reading Tree. It is designed to provide an easy, supportive and sustained read for those pupils who need to gain confidence and motivation in their reading.

It’s a great series, highly recommended to emergent and reluctant readers.

What can you tell us about the book ?
Loz and some of her friends have a secret sen that they play at their grandma’s garden. One day they want to put a new carpet in the den. They hear a hollow sound from the floor – it is a secret hiding place. They find some very old coins that are very valuable. A woman who works at a collectibles store tries to trick them, but Mr. Saffrey has a plan!
I would recommend this book to my friends. It is funny and I like how it ends and how they play a trick on the sneaky woman.
This book is suitable for ages 7-10. I think people who like mysteries and secret plans will like the book.
Till next time…
