Bamba Beach: A Bloomsbury Reader - Pratima Mitchell

A poignant, contemporary family story set in Goa, India, written by Pratima Mitchell. Hari's family make their living from fishing, but with no fish left in the bay, times are really hard. To catch the fish further away they need a better boat, but to get a better boat they need to sell fish... Despite family feuds and village superstitions standing in his way, Hari doesn't give up, and it isn't long before help arrives from the most unlikely source. This thought-provoking story from Pratima Mitchell has engaging black-and-white illustrations by David Dean and is perfect for children who are developing as readers. The Bloomsbury Readers series is packed with brilliant books to get children reading independently in Key Stage 2, with book-banded stories by award-winning authors like double Carnegie Medal winner Geraldine McCaughrean and Waterstones Prize winner Patrice Lawrence covering a wide range of genres and topics. With charming illustrations, ideas for discussion points and online guided reading notes written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), this series is ideal for reading both in the classroom and at home.

'Patrice Lawrence, Tony Bradman, Margaret Mahy [...] any list that brings together such a quality line up of authors is going to be welcomed.' - Books for Keeps on the series Book Band: Dark Blue (Ideal for ages 9+)
