Write a Review

Book Band: Lime (Ideal for ages 6+)

An inspiring story about a Romani Traveller family, ideal for children practising reading at home or in school.
Halle and her family are Romani Travellers. They move around and they're very good at fixing and making things. Halle's family visit a village that had lots of problems at their annual running race last year. Can Halle's family, with their truck of tools and wood, help the community avert another disaster?
This story from children's authors Richard O'Neill and Michelle Russell is perfect for Key Stage 1 (KS1) children who are learning to read by themselves. It features colour illustrations by Elijah Vardo and provides awareness, understanding and celebration of a Travelling community.
Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. The series is ideal for both home and school, with gorgeous colour illustrations, tips for parents, and fun activity ideas. Online guided reading and teaching notes, written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), are available at
'Every child needs a Bloomsbury Young Reader. Fun, stretching, just the right length, full of adventurous vocabulary and punctuation.' - Julie-Ann McCulloch, Teacher
