Oliver and the Seawigs (read by Mr Hodge)


Oliver and the Seawigs is an adventure story by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre. It a book that we study closely in the Summer Term in Year 4, alongside our learning about the beach and sea. I associate it with gloriously hot and sunny days, when my class and I could sit outside, enjoy the sun and read the story together.

I read this book when I was about ten and it became my favourite book. I have read it again recently and realise now why I liked it so much. It is very well written and has adventure, mystery and captures the wide open spaces of the plains of America. Oh and not to mention the horses. ‘The Green Grass of Wyoming’ by Mary O’Hara.
