Read reviews by teachers of "Racing the Moon"

Michelle Morgan - Wednesday, March 26, 2014

It's great to get feedback on Racing the Moon from teachers and librarians. Several reviews by teachers are now available on the Allen and Unwin website. Some of the comments include:

"Beautifully written, this book is a great read for 10 to 15 year-olds. I would recommend it to read aloud to a class. It has humour, history and plenty of childhood escapades to keep the listener engaged." (Nova Gibson, Massey Primary)

"The strength of the book is the themes Joe shares with the reader. Themes such as families (and the fact they aren’t perfect), friendship, schools and religion." (Roxanne Steenbergen, Windermere Primary School, Tasmania)
