I would not use Jackie Wilson for Eleven plus English. She is writing for a younger age group in my opinion. We went to a session with her and most of the girls were much younger. Also her plots are too domestic and I don't think her vocab is challenging enough. I would recomend The Secret Garden. The Little Princess, Tom Sawyer, Little Women, The Railway Children, Carries War, Tom's Midnight Garden, Goodnight Mister Tom, The Ghost of Thomas Kempe, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, Skellig, The Wind in the Willows, Ballet Shoes, Peter Pan, Oliver Twist, Anne of Green Gables, Alice in Wonderland, The Water Babies, The Call of the Wild, Heidi, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The indian in the Cupboard, I Coriander, What Katy did etc. Not forgetting one of our all time favouries, never tire of it, Just William. Anyone know any websites where I could get the text online. I think it must still be in copyright. I can't find it anywhere. DG
