Picture of Cid and Mo

Ivan the Terrible by Anne Fine


review this book

Reviewer: Author Cid
Ages: Y5, Y6       Genres: Humour, School

Ivan starts a new school. He cannot speak a word of English so a child in his class is appointed as his translator. The only problem is that Ivan says really terrible things! The translator has to do his best to come up with alternative versions of what Ivan says and is very often put on the spot! Very funny in parts. Anne Fine’s books usually have a ‘moral’ or positive outcome and this book is no different. A quick read at 128 pages.
