Read full description of the books The Coral Island:I went to primary school at four and a half, into Mrs. Whitcombe's class. Everything was miniature, including Mrs. Whitcombe who was a little person. We sat on our little chairs at our little desks and got out our little books. Janet and John. It was quite glorious except that I had read the whole year's Janet and John primers by morning break (a very little bottle of milk and a digestive biscuit).
The only other books in the classroom were Treasure Island, Swiss Family Robinson and Coral Island. So for the rest of the term while all the other little children were learning to read, I was immersed in tales of the far away. Far, far away from the little Welsh village I lived in into a big, big world full of treasures and exploration. I was hooked on reading from then on.
