Guided Reading

This week's Guided Reading is taken from a short story called Murkaster by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. It is in 'The Book of Hopes' which was made available for free during the first lockdown. It is a beautiful collection of stories, poems and illustrations.


Murkaster is about a girl called Sunny who lives in a place called Murkaster. It isn't on any maps and has been forgotten about because any clouds that go to Murkaster, never go away again. Sunny isn't even sure what her name means until she meets an elephant who helps her to uncover Murkaster and find the sun.
