About this deal

I normally don’t really love political statements, but the environmental issue is near and dear to my heart. This story starts off with the Brightstorm twins finding out that their father has likely been killed in an accident (not a spoiler, it's in the synopsis! Lontown for London (I don’t know if this is what was meant, but I couldn’t unmake this connection in my mind. Her stories are such exciting adventures set in amazing places with incredible characters, including Thought Wolves who communicate through thoughts.

Once I got over the weird words and read this as a fun, whimsical type story, then I started to enjoy it. Yesterday a parent came over to tell me how impressed she was by the book fair and that you did a fabulous job of selling the books to the children first. Certaines résolutions de problèmes sont un peu simple mais il s’agit d’un roman destiné aux 9-12 ans, je pense que le scénario est parfait pour cette tranche d’âge.

As the winged ship Aurora sets sail, the twins must keep their wits about them and prove themselves worthy of the rest of the crew. This is a very well-paced book, with plenty of action and high-stakes, as well as lovely personal and tender moments and introspection. Though instead of experience, the twins have each other—which is sure to be the greatest benefit of all. Brightstorm is Vashti Hardy’s gripping debut novel that was followed by the unique Wildspark This book fits the need of any confident reader, from adventure lover to readers who enjoy family stories.

I feel like the characters fitted too well into the moulds of ‘good’ and ‘evil’, and that just isn’t realistic. I used to read through a lot of these books with my kids, but we are starting to age out of the genre. I found the writing to be fairly clean but a tad didactic, but for the most part it was a solid story.Arthur est un jeune garçon qui, malgré son handicap, a un courage important, il va au delà des apparences. This gives them an advantage in the race south because water is a readily available resource, unlike pitch. Après, les actions s’enchaînent, entre la conquête du Polaris Sud et les complots entre les familles d’explorateurs.

He is an intelligent, brave and determined explorer who strives to make ground-breaking discoveries and push the boundaries of adventure. I also loved how Hardy handled Arthur's feelings about his disability and how he overcame his anxieties around it. Synopsis: Synopsis: Twins Arthur and Maudie Brightstorm receive word in Lontown that their famous explorer father has died in a failed attempt to reach the southernmost point in the world.They set sail in a marvellous sky-ship on a perilous voyage to discover the truth, encountering all manner of devious saboteurs and quirky characters along the way. For our twins, this book provides a mirror of their own world with a relationship they understand so well.
