David Almond novels - reasons why young people like them?

Discussion in 'English' started by WhiteCoffee, Aug 23, 2011.

  1. Have you used David Almond novels with pupils? What is it about his writing that pupils love?
    I appreciate your help. I'm preparing a creative writing project for KS2/3.
  2. It's cos they are good. But to help you a bit more with your project: economy of writing, description that's paired down etc..
  3. Well-written; carefully crafted; building to a climax; use of suspense; creation of situations and characters that allow some empathy/ identification.
