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.

Thanks so much Vanessa for coming out and sharing your book β€œThe Bee Detectives” with our children 3-5 years old. The experience allowed them to learn so much more about Bees. We have had our native Bees for several years and had beekeepers out before. Your book took an in-depth look into classification, different ways they live, how they collect pollen and make honey.Β  It created lots of meaningful conversation with the children; your interactive book reading allowed them to share these ideas with each other. The extended activity afterwards of the magnifiers provided by Vanessa was a great extension to the book. The children were so excited to be their very own Bee detectives and really extended their learning.

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.
