In Jack Black and the Ship of Thieves and Dirty Magic, Carol Hughes has written two excellent adventure tales. Jack Black is an old favourite and has been enjoyed by all the children I’ve ever read it too as a serial.
Dirty Magic is more complex and darker but equally entertaining. Carol Hughes is an excellent author and I hope this unit plan will encourage you to hunt out her books (Look out for her Toots books) and share them with your students. This unit plan is a mere $2.00 .
