The Land of Roar by Jenny McLachlan

The Land of Roar by Jenny McLachlan

What do you get when you cross a grandpa who loves jokes, twins who have vivid imaginations and a dusty old fold out bed?

The Land of Roar by Jenny McLachlan of course!

Meet the twins, Arthur and Rose who until fairly recently loved playing together and creating magical worlds. But now Rose is more interested in the older girl next door and wants nothing to do with Arthur, who still seeks out magical play, imagination and much more fun than just talking on the trampoline.

But things change when Grandad asks them to clean out the attic and a fold out bed that they had forgotten about appears and Grandad – disappears.

Determined to find him, Arthur needs to remember what he can about the fold out bed – and the world that is within!

You’ll fly high with a once in a lifetime friend named Win, swim with a blue haired girl called Mitch and try to escape the most feared of all – Crowky.

Not only will you escape with Arthur and Rose to find Grandad, you’ll also love the wicked sense of humour scattered throughout the story, engaging the most reluctant of readers and entwining magical lands, fun and adventure.

The Land of Roar is reminiscent of Peter Pan, Jumanji and The never-ending story – all of the favourites wrapped up within one story.

Children 8 and up will love reading this book and looking at the accompanying illustrations and maps.

I was impressed with Vanessa’s professionalism in preparing the teacher notes for my picture book, In the Shadow of an Elephant. Her depth of knowledge on the multitude of topics covered was just incredible! She has compiled a 15-page document that will allow Educators and students an opportunity to explore conversations and discover different layers within the book.

I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of Vanessa’s teacher notes for My Daddy is Different available from website. From the start, Vanessa was quick to respond to emails, efficient and professional and was willing to make changes when asked. She developed a comprehensive 15 page resource, as well as extra activity pages that extended the important themes of the story. The activities were linked to the Australian Curriculum and cater for Kindy through to Year Four.I wholeheartedly recommend Vanessa because her knowledge and expertise means that I now have a valuable teaching resource to provide alongside my book.

Vanessa’s expertise and attention to detail when compiling Teachers’ Notes is incredible. Her work putting together notes for my poetry collection, SeaSpray17: Ocean Photography & Haiku Poetry was comprehensive, insightful and practical. 

Vanessa’s Teachers’ Notes are written in a way that makes them equally accessible for classroom use, learning from home, library programming and use by the general public. 

I highly recommend Vanessa’s professionalism and quality of work, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with her again!
