Roy the Eagle

by Kate O'Sullivan - £5.99  Loose Chippings (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780955421761 | ISBN 10: 0955421764

Roy the Eagle is teased for wearing glasses. Engagingly told in verse with colourful and forceful illustrations, it was an instant hit when trialed with Key Stage 1 children (ages 5-6), although it can be read to younger children out loud or read by older children on their own.
A teacher at one primary school described the book as brilliant and one of the children said 'It is a story isn't it, because eagles don't wear glasses do they?' Another school has used the book to encourage a young girl who is refusing to wear her glasses. The teacher is very impressed and is looking for a cuddly toy eagle they can put glasses on!
Children can follow Roy's adventures as he overcomes all kinds of obstacles to discover that the very things that make him different from his friends are what brings them closer together.
