Found abandoned in a bear cave as a baby, Yanka has always wondered about where she is from. She tries to ignore the strange whispers and looks from the villagers, wishing she was as strong on the inside as she is on the outside. But, when she has to flee her house, looking for answers about who she really is, a journey far beyond one that she ever imagined begins: from icy rivers to smouldering mountains meeting an ever-growing herd of extraordinary friends along the way.
I absolutely LOVED this book and would definitely give it 10/10. I have previously read The House with Chicken Legs also by Sophie Anderson but I thought this was even better! It took me a while to get into it but once I had started, I couldn’t put it down. I really enjoyed how there were stories within the stories which all came together at the end. Such a clever book with a very special ending. I would particularly recommend it to Year 5 and 6 as it is a long read but well worth it.
For Christmas I received a lovely gift from Evie – her favourite book which she recommended I should read!
The book is called ‘Murder Most Unladylike’ and it is written by Robin Stevens. I must say I really did thoroughly enjoy the book and I can’t wait to read more from his series! It is thrilling and exciting and really gets you thinking all the way through! Thank you so much Evie for your wonderful gift and recommendation!

Isla’s creation is of a swimming fairy, she has really got in to reading the set of Rainbow Magic books over lockdown, reading a chapter every night, Mum is really pleased with her progress and enthusiasm with her reading. She drew this and coloured it in herself.
