Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

The Ravens’ Call

The king’s ravenkeeper and his daughter, Alys, are part of a long line of proud royal ravenkeepers and they know the ravens well. So, when Alys notices the ravens’ feathers changing colour, she knows something must be done. Is it a message or a warning? Her father has a broken leg and is unable to make a long journey, so it’s down to Alys to take the message to the king and tell him of the ravens’ change.

Will the message become clear and will Alys be able to deliver it before it’s too late? This historical fantasy adventure is written by Sinead O’Hart. Lime Plus/Band 11+ books provide challenging plots and vocabulary as well as opportunities to practise inference, prediction and reading stamina. Pages 46 and 47 allow children to re-visit the content of the book, supporting comprehension skills, vocabulary development and recall.

Ideas for reading in the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities.
