Bug Club Independent Lime Plus books give high attaining children age-appropriate fiction and non-fiction stories which help them to work at greater depth, and allow you to measure their reading progress.
‘Nestled quietly by the railway and the river, in the Showman’s Yard, a treasure trove can be found … but only by those who really look, and really listen.’
Follow Mary Ann and her travelling Showmen family as they defend their yard from developers. The generations work together to help everyone understand that Grandad Henry is right: ‘not all treasure glistens’.
We would like to thank the children and teachers of Thorntree Primary School, Glasgow, as well as Christine Stirling from The Showmen’s Guild for their invaluable help in the development of this title.
'I would recommend this as a book that brings Showpeople and their lifestyle alive'. Valerie Moody (MBE), National Education Liaison Officer for The Showmen's Guild of Great Britain
