Author: Katherine Paterson
I have always enjoyed the movie that is based on this book. It screened here a couple of months ago and upon raving about it, my sister handed me the book to read. It is such a cute little paperback novel. I thought I would have it read in no time, so decided to read it aloud to the kids. Well, don't be deceived by size. This book took quite a bit of reading. I put this down to it being a classic. All classics seem to have depth in the language which make reading aloud different from modern novels.
'We need a place,' Leslie called to him, '...just for us.'
It was Leslie who invented Terabithia, a secret kingdom on an island across the creek. Here Jess is strong and unafraid. so when something terrible happens, Jess finds he is able to cope better than he could ever have imagined.
A powerful, moving story about friendship.
