About this deal

As for how it won an award, I suspect that's solely because it illustrates one of the future consequences of climate change: some real countries likely will be flooded that badly.

In fact, I think I like the story-telling more this way than if another hundred or so pages of explanation and backstories had been added: the reader has to make some leaps along the way. Also, I think this book was mainly focusing on how the water is getting higher and lands getting smaller. I think it would have been better if it showed how Zoe and Munchkin got along and about them having their baby brother. The writing on the other hand was not the best, I feel like the emotions could have been shown better. I read this over a weekend so I could use it as a stimulus for the English work the children in the year 6 class I was working with were going to do.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Ten-year-old Zoe discovers a small rowboat and keeps it a secret until she sets out alone on the great sea to find her parents.

She escapes to Eels Island ( Ely Cathedral) where she discovers a sinister society run by a strange boy named Dooby. Marcus also wrote with his brother Julian, and contributed to a short story collection with fellow YA authors. The polar ice caps have melted and the sea level has risen, slowly but inexorably, until most of low-lying eastern England is under water. Floodland is an extraordinary novel, set some time in the not too distant future in a land that has been reclaimed by the sea.I would highly recommend this book not only to use as a stimulus but as a read because it really gets you thinking.
