REVIEWED BY JONATHAN (9) &
OLIVIA (9), VIC
Girl on Wire by Lucy Estela, illustrated by Elise Hurst, Penguin Books Australia,
Jonathan & Olivia reviewed a school copy of this book.
Girl on Wire, written by Lucy Estela and illustrated by Elise Hurst, is a simple but encouraging story. It’s about a troubled girl that has obstacles before her. The tension builds and her fear grows and grows in her mind. She is urged to move forward and to be courageous on her own. Will she make it?
The illustrations are beautiful and expressive. Look closer at the vibrant paintings for they have hidden images that add a deeper meaning. A must-read for anybody who thinks they need courage and can’t do things. Age appropriate for 6-year-olds and above.
