Ideal for children tackling their first chapter book as a solo read or a read aloud. Why can Faye and Danny hear the trees at the bottom of the garden talking in their dreams? Why is the farmer so unhappy to see people on his land. And why have the woods stopped being friendly?
Martin Hall was born in the UK sometime in the last century. He's been interested for a long time in writing for children of all ages. Charlie and Bethan is his most successful so far, but look out for Kindle titles like ' The Dead Centre of the Woods' and 'The Haunted Boy.' He is currently working on a four book series for children called 'The Elemental Dragons'. The first book 'The Dragon's Tooth' was initially published by Praxis some time ago. This and the sequels will be published as Kindle editions at some point soon.
He also writes musical plays for school productions. 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' was performed at the Electric Theatre in Guildford and an original work, 'Subject to Change' was premiered by King's School in Bruton, Somerset. He will write productions to order taking into account requirements such as cast size, venue and musical abilities.
When he is not writing, Martin manages to combine a day job in software with relaxing activities like playing various musical instruments and more demanding ones like long distance running and scuba diving.read more
