To the Edge of the World
Set sail on an exciting adventure in award-winning author Julia Green’s new story To the Edge of the World. Set in the islands of the Outer Hebrides, Julia’s book is a gripping sea adventure with wild places, open seas and remote islands.
Explore Julia’s story in your reading groups with downloadable reading notes, packed with themes for discussion, writing ideas, and creative activities. We will provide postcards for your readers to imagine their own amazing journeys by writing a postcard to a friend.
If you hold any events using this pack, we would love to see photos on social media. You can do this using #TotheEdgeoftheWorld and tagging @OUPChildrens and @readingagency.
