Favourite Sentence from Page 11:
Her head snapped back at a thwacking noise.
This book in three words:
ADVENTURE, FRIENDSHIP, EXCITEMENT
The Girl Who Stole an Elephant is an incredibly exciting, fast-paced and heart-warming adventure which I enjoyed in one sitting. I then read it as a class read to my Year 4 class who were completely gripped by it! The short chapters and many cliff-hanger chapter endings makes this a perfect read aloud for a class.
There is so much to love in this story from the exciting fast-paced action to the edge-of-your-seat peril to the portrayal of heart-warming friendships to the beautiful depiction of the jungle.
This is a story I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending for anyone who loves a fast-paced adventure …
You can read more about this gorgeous story in my review: The Girl Who Stole an Elephant.
I’d love if anyone who wants to give this meme a go would comment in the comments box and include a link to your post so I can visit, comment and find some great middle-grade recommendations. If you do create a post and are on Twitter, and would like to share your post, please use the hashtag #MGTakesOnThursday so I can find it, read it and share it!
