Eva Ibbotson Chatterbooks activity pack | Reading Agency

 Bio: Born into a Jewish family in Vienna, Austria in 1925. Eva Ibbotson attended the University of Durham, intending to be a physiologist but was put off by the amount of animal testing that she had to do. Instead She married and raised a family, returning to school to become a teacher in the 1960s. Ibbotson began writing with the TV drama ‘Linda Came Today’, in 1965. Ten years later she published her first novel, The Great Ghost Rescue.

Her books are imaginative and humorous, they offend feature magical creatures. Despite the fact she disliked thinking about the supernatural, Eva wanted to decrease her readers’ fear of such things. Eva Ibbotson’s antagonist in her stories will be greedy and have a lust for power.

Stacking the Shelves #1


 


I don't usually do book haul. Since I buy a majority of my books used and maybe showing them will encourage others to buy second hand. Used books are cheaper and their environmentally friendly.

I got 14 books for an averages of one dollar each. At B&N you can only get one book for that price or maybe two if there a good deal.
