About the book: Blue John is a story inspired by the limestone caves in the Peak District close to where Berlie lives. It is a classically told story about a child fashioned out of fire and ice by the Queen of Darkness, who wants the child to keep her company forever in her dark underground world. The story tells how Blue John encounters the overworld and its inhabitants and longs to be with them.
Reasons for selection: Beautifully wrought poetic language and with universal themes to discuss, this is both a challenge and a delight for year 3 readers.
