This book could be successfully used in English. It has excellent examples of character writing. It could be effectively used to explore character descriptions as the examples in the book are very detailed and show a depth beyond just physical descriptions. It is also a good book to challenge misconceptions about what people are like from their physical appearance which is such a prevalent issue for older children especially as they are getting ready to move to a new school. Thus it could also be used to address those issues that young girls have and to show that everyone is different and that it is normal.
