‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
Other Side of the Bridge (The)
by Wolfram Hanel
Age Range: 6-8
Andy is not the sort of boy who likes sports and he would rather spend his free
time studying nature. Because Andy is quite short and doesn’t join the other boys
in their activities, he is repeatedly bullied. There are rumours that on the other side
of the bridge there lives an old grumpy man called Jasper and he eats children!
Driven by curiosity Andy decides to investigate, but on the way he gets trapped in
a snowstorm. The next thing he knows is that he wakes up to find himself in the
house of old Jasper who has saved his life. When Andy returns home he is able
to reveal the truth about the old man and to dispel all the prejudice that has been
built up around him. Another book in the ‘Easy Read’ series.
