The winners of the Diverse Book Awards 2023 have been announced, with one winner from each of the four categories announced: Picture book, Children... I loved Sky Chasers by Emma Carroll. It was fascinating how Magpie’s (the main character) role in the story develops over the course of this historic and truly adventurous novel; following Magpie (who is no ordinary or stereotypical girl), and her friend’s escapades every step of the way, from a small town in France to its capital; Paris, where an all manner of events occur… For this reason, I dislike the Montgolfier brothers even though they are meant to be liked and are the inventers of the balloon. Sky Chasers is a great book about a family who had a dream to make the first flying machine but they come across a few bumps in the road, or – for a more accurate metaphor – the sky. Their enemy at the time, the English, had spies in France as the also wanted to be the first to send someone into the sky. Or so Magpie and the rest of France thought. This book is my favourite so far as there are some very interesting characters and parts of the story are true – which just made it more enjoyable.

When was the book set? What made the history or the time it was set in interesting? Under the reign of Marie Antoinette and King Louis. Coffee house Caffè Nero has announced the 16-strong shortlist for the inaugural Nero Book Awards, recognising the outstanding books of the past 12... The book follows Magpie, child thief turned aviator. After a series of accidents, Magpie finds herself in the employ of the Montgolfier family, who happen to be attempting to achieve the first powered flight by use of a hot air balloon. What follows is a tale of adventure, discovery and excitement.


Experience your inner child as you start exploring a breathtaking magical world in a cardboard box, starring Max. Prove to your friends you are a true Sky Chaser. Mi sono davvero divertita durante la lettura di I cacciatori del cielo e non vedevo l’ora di poterlo consigliare a tutti. Se avete figli tra la quinta elementare e le medie questo libro non potete lasciarvelo sfuggire, sono certa che lo ameranno e ve ne parleranno fino a sfinirvi. We’ve been looking for a cute platformer like this so we’re super happy we found this one! It’s really fun and very addictive!! Made our heart feel good and had clean gameplay, would suggest to anyone wanting to experience joy in life. The characters: I thought Sebastian was interesting because he is rude, kind, and gets angry. I didn’t like Odette because she is arrogant and does everything urgently.

I would definitely recommend this book to other students because it is educational but is also a great story to read. Was the plot exciting, thought-provoking, serious, or light-hearted (or any combination of these?) It was exciting because Magpie was a thief but a friend to the boy she stole from. It was thought-provoking and exciting because I didn’t know when Madame Delacroix was going to strike next. Eager to know when Sky Chasers first graced the App Store? It was launched on 20th January 2016. When Was Sky Chasers Last Updated?

Was the plot exciting, thought-provoking, serious, or light-hearted (or any combination of these?) The plot was exciting. The plot: There is a girl, Magpie, who is an orphan and works for Madame Delacroix. Madame Delacroix wants a box but it’s kept in a family’s house. She (Magpie) moves into the house and she tries to get the box, but she realises they are nice. She helps them build a hot air balloon so they will be the first to fly. La protagonista è lei, Gazza, una ladruncola dalla pelle scura e dall’aspetto mascolino, senza una famiglia che si prenda cura di lei. Gazza vive alla giornata, ruba solo cibo e qualche moneta, perché in qualche modo deve pur sopravvivere, e si prende cura di Coco il suo gallo da compagnia che le sta sempre appiccicato addosso e non emette un suono. This game is excellent, Phenomenal! For one, the sprites and themes, The sprites and themes are very nostalgic of stuff like the sega genesis and SNES Second, the music The music adds a cutesy adventurous theme to the game. It is very pleasing to the ears and goes well with the music Third, the gameplay Smooth controls, almost no input lag, and the game it challenging enough not to be rage inducing but to add a fun challenge into this already great game. Overall, 5 stars, perfect game 20/10. Magpie stole from Pierre one night and then Pierre doesn’t know that it was Magpie, his friend, who stole. Both of them go on a journey to make the first hot air balloon. Yes, there are plot twists, and yes, I found the plot twists interesting.
