About this deal

Many of the bans and restrictions have been lifted and it remains required reading in many other American, Australian, Irish, British, New Zealand and Canadian high schools.

Of Mice and Men was adapted by Donna Franceschild as a radio play directed by Kirsty Williams starring David Tennant and Liam Brennan broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 7 March 2010. In this first book (because it is probably going to be a trilogy), I talk about my early years, from nought to 16. I would have been thrilled if my son, and his kind and not-so-kind classmates, had read this book at school. His love for soft things is a weakness, mostly because he does not know his own strength, and eventually becomes his undoing.

I recommend this book to all who love reading books about family dynamics especially those about how people are affected by war or family loss. It I'd a dual timeline story which helps in understand now the characters and story line develop into this wonderful book. The read­er leaves know­ing that a hap­pi­er end­ing is not only pos­si­ble, but is achiev­able through action. The loneliness of Curley's wife is upheld by Curley's jealousy, which causes all the ranch hands to avoid her. Ten-year old Lenny wants to save his home, Roseville, Louisiana, from the sinkhole that threatens to destroy it.

After being hired at a farm, the pair are confronted by Curley, the Boss's small, aggressive son with a Napoleon complex who dislikes larger men. The bright spot every week is the arrival of the latest issue of the Burrell's Build-It-at-Home Encyclopedia. And if that’s not enough to deal with, the Spink kids are also coping with their father walking out, a sleazy neighbour with a bad moustache and designs on their mum, a forgetful old woman who may – or may not – be a long-lost aunt and a neighbour who pinches their cheeks and plies them with goulash. This selection of books celebrates all the things most toddlers learn to do from age 2 to 4 or thereabouts, from jumping, drawing and playing with other children, to potty training and going to nursery or school.The book includes a summary of the original midrash, along with a hopeful end note about the healing power of kindness and forgiveness…. His family is large and truly diverse and his fondest memories are of laughing, singing, dancing and eating with them. We quickly realise how much she loves and protects her brother – while often resenting his presence; he stands out and is an embarrassment.

on each page will encourage young readers to join in with the words, while the familiar setting and game will help them to engage with the story. Slim is greatly respected by many of the characters and is the only character whom Curley treats with respect. The les­son is gen­tly told, with no didac­tic over­tones, and Benziman’s seem­ing­ly sim­ple line draw­ings are teem­ing with detail far more com­plex than is evi­dent at first glance, using col­or to clear­ly dif­fer­en­ti­ate the characters. I was at my last school for 4 years and we had ********* book fairs every term – and every term, I was disappointed by the narrow range of books.A good and warm book, full of painfully learned self-knowledge, and also, of course, very funny at times. I listened to the audiobook and loved the narrator whos tone really brought out the wonderful sense of atmosphere that this book contains. According to Scarseth "in true great literature the pain of Life is transmuted into the beauty of Art. I think this book would be great for kids aged 7-11 or 6-11 for kids who really like to challenge themselves. One year later, in the town of Roseville, Louisiana, in the aftermath of economic crisis and corporate environmental damage, 10-year-old Lenny Lockhart is losing the people and things dearest to him.
