Junior Education PLUS October 08.
The latest edition of this magazine for teaching 7-11s has a few literature related articles. On page 11, you can find ideas for the National Year of Reading's October theme, Word of mouth. Huw Thomas writes about literary activities using Tom Becker's Darkside and its follow-ups, Lifeblood and Nightrap, on pages 20-21. These books are set in a mysterious other world hidden within contemporary London where the main characters, Ricky and Jonathan, encounter all sorts of devilsome villains. Finally, the review section on pages 58-59 features a selection of spooky reads.
