The next installment in the Book Club is close to KPA’s heart, as it has been written and illustrated by one of our very own teachers!


Volcano Sleep!

Genre: Fiction, fantasy, children’s picture book

Volcano Sleep is…funny…surprising and unexpected!

Main characters: Thelonious Gold is the leader of the cheetahs, monkeys, lions, zebras and snakes! But beware, there is also a fire-breathing dragon…

Setting: This book is set on an Island which you can see over the horizon.

Plot: There’s a problem on the Island…a volcano disrupts King Thelonious’ sleep – so a helpful parrot goes to investigate. There is a surprising plot twist which is funny and will make you laugh – read Mr Burton’s book to find out exactly what’s causing those eruptions!

“I loved how King Thelonious came up with a great idea to help the Islanders! Very funny and engaging story book!” Miss Weeden

Why would you recommend this book?

I would recommend this book because it rhymes – so it is nice to read – and it’s a fantasy.

Volcano Sleep gets a 5 star rating!!!
