The Climbers

by Ali Standish
illustrated by Alette Straathof

Ref: 16181

Alma lives in a small town bordering the forest, surrounded by rumours of what lies beyond, including the most fearsome beasts. Undaunted, she ventures out, befriending a terrified bear cub and, eventually, coming together with other children and animals seeking freedom in a world of scared, prejudice-filled adults. Some wonderful material on the displacement of communities, human encroachments on rural landscapes, adult terrors of 'outsiders' and, triumphing over this, the wisdom, clear-sightedness and fairness of children. 'I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to people who like animals' (Isak, aged 8, Letterbox Library reviewer). A highly illustrated fiction book, perfect for emerging solo readers, bridging picture books and first chapter books. Age 5-8, Hardback 84pp
