OTOLI was recently entered in The Wishing Shelf Awards, this is what readers thought...
A number of the boys felt the book was a little slow. They wanted (I quote) ‘More magic, wizards and cars.’ (Typical boys!)
Excellent flow to the text. Speech worked particularly well. Character descriptions were superb but a few wanted more setting description. The teachers noted: ‘The vocab was perfect for this age group.’
The children discovered no spelling or grammatical errors.
TO SUM UP
From the feedback , the children (particularly the girls) loved this book. Really, it was only the cover which let it down. Might be worth re-doing it. From other feedback, kids always seem to love books with a picture of the characters on the front.
‘A thoughtful, well-crafted story. Perfect for any child battling with the up and downs of school life.’
