Becoming Anorak Nid (Book One) by Alix B Macey
This is the first in the Becoming Anorak Nid series by Alix B Macey. Perfect for 8+ children + reluctant readers.
Psst.. she’s not fussy, she’ll even take (reluctant) 38 year olds!
But hey, stop…you don’t want to read about the fact that it’s a fictional children’s story that will propel you full pelt into the sporadically funny, celestial life adventures of a persecuted, orphaned spider called Nid – with a fantastical fantasy twist and funny (not entirely ha ha) scrolls? You just want the facts – right?
I bet you don’t even care that ever since Great Aunt Wince got flushed down the plug-hole in the upstairs lavvy and was never seen again, Nid avoids water at all costs – in whatever form it takes; puddles, ice-bergs, baths, even spit – do you?
In the face of all this, for goodness sake don’t spill the beans, but Nid has a job to do – will he be able to pull it off though?
Somewhere a cat barked, a dog meowed, and Trevor the Webber persecuted.
Purposefully, with a touch of mysterious silence, lurking in the corner of Mr. Busy’s bumble sale – underneath holey socks, smelly jumpers and odd knickers, is the magical answer to all of Nid’s bonkers thinking – that could change his life forever…
Joined by his astonishing mute ant friend, Sile Ant – who for obvious reasons has no speaking part (quite odd in a book really?), Nid heads off on one of the most challenging adventures he will ever have to undertake –ever, in the whole world of England.
But just exactly where did he leave his oomph?
Why is that rascal Trevor the Webber having his ear sown back on?
What are these mysterious scrolls with funny bits of ribbon around them?
What about Cricket and his mysterious missing self?!
Why is Anorak Nid called Anorak Nid?
Why am I asking so many questions?
And hey! Why is there a light, the size of a freckle, groaning underneath the kitchen window?
You won’t find the answers here… you sausage! You have to take a look inside….
