I've got some money in my dept budget allocated for new class readers and I'd love some ideas for what's working well in other schools. I already have Holes, Private Peaceful, Goodnight Mr Tom, Stone Cold and The Boy in the Striped PJs, so I'd like some that offer different stories and themes to those - and nothing about war! I'd also like to avoid books they might read in primary school. Anything a bit challenging/different/off the beaten track is welcome! Ideas please?
