KPE Episode 248: "Copper Top"

"Copper Top" by Coral Atkinson

Recently we were very priviledged to receive a complementary copy of the newly released children's book, "Copper Top" from the author. Coral Atkinson lives in Canterbury, in the South Island of New Zealand.
" Copper Top follows the fortunes of feisty young Irish heroine Aisling Lynch, and is set in the West Coast goldfields of the 1860s. The book is ideal for readers aged 9 to 13."
Toreka and Selena both read this book and after declaring it a great read, wrote and recorded this podcast about the book.
Have a listen and leave them some feedback....
