Dear Grade Six Teachers

It's Here! You can buy a copy (or several) 

Ashton becomes the most popular boy at his school when he suddenly acquires great running speed. His friend, Kenroi, tries to help him maintain this speed, so that his school can win vital competitions. However, the boys may be dealing with something which they cannot control. Can Ashton live up to the expectations of his father and school? In the end, he has to make a vital decision. What is the right thing to do? This is a fun 'boy to enjoy book'. Girls will like it too.

Dear Grade Six teachers, 

In this post-exam, waiting-for results- period, here's a book you can use to profitably fill some time with your students

1  It's fiction and a delightful read. The fantasy will appeal both to boys and girls and it's laced with amusing situations.

2. Once they have enjoyed reading the story you can use elements to spark research and debate on several points. For example:

The problem of athletes using drugs to enhance performance

Expectations parents have for their children.

Can close friends lead you astray?

The need to develop one's own integrity and stick to it

Why winning at all costs is not acceptable

You can have a lot of fun with this book. Try it. Ask for it at bookstores. Call the publisher Carlong. Their marketing department can be reached at 876 9609366. You get a discount for bulk purchases.

Above all enjoy reading with the children
