My Friend’s a Gris-Kwok

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Readers will be intrigued to discover that babysitting takes on a new perspective when your friend and his little sister are Gris-Kwoks! Malorie Blackman's 1994 Scholastic story has been adapted by Barrington Stoke for their series of dyslexia/reluctant reader-friendly titles for young readers. Typically short sentences, brief chapters, cream paper and clear fonts are assisted by plentiful illustrations which ably assist the interpretation of the story.

While readers may not be able to fly like Alex and Polly, they will be familiar with small children who cause mayhem when being looked after by older siblings and then become perfect angels when their parents question who has made the mess!

A welcome return for a lesser-known title from the Children's Laureate.
