Speak up Spike!
pub Egmont in 2002 Go Bananas series (6-8)






Scary shadows seem to follow Spike wherever he goes! How will he ever grow out of his fear of the dark?

It takes Mrs Pugh, his teacher, and a Divali play to bring out the beast in Spike - and when he finds his voice he discovers it's as big as anyone else's.

Contains 'fantastic facts about shadows' and instructions to make a shadow puppet of your own.

'This is a book about finding one's voice, and its publication could be said to be establishing Ewart as a significant voice in children's books'   -  Michael Thorn Times Educational Supplement Nov 2002
