Young City Reads 2020

The annual BIG READ for Sussex schools is back!

Due to the changing circumstances and cancellation of Brighton Festival, we are sharing a free reading resource for all those looking to read along with Young City Reads 2020. This reading guide provides in depth chapter summaries and discussion questions for this year's book Malamander.

This year’s book choice is the sensational seaside mystery, by Thomas Taylor - Malamander. Set in Eerie-on-Sea, a town where strange stories seem to wash up on the shore. Root for daring duo Herbert Lemon and Violet Parma, as they team up to solve the mystery of a legendary sea-monster. Join Thomas Taylor and an audience of young readers from across Sussex to celebrate this wonderful book at a special live and interactive schools event.

‘I’m thrilled to participate in Young City Reads 2020 as it seems so appropriate to have children who live and go to school near the coast read my book. I hope it captures their imagination to create their own stories and encourages a life-long love of reading.’ Thomas Taylor
