The Apostrophe Posse is a story of adventure, chaos and a whole lot of fun. I wasn’t sure what to expect from The Apostrophe Posse but I found myself really enjoying the books only a few pages in.
Trouble comes to Tea Tree Bend! Brother and Sister Cam and Ellie and their friends Billy and Louisa have had enough of the town signs not having apostrophes. They develop a posse and take it into their own hands to fix things. With summer holidays almost over there isn’t much time to get it done, and while their heart is in the right place, chaos enters the town.
The Apostrophe Posse are very serious about how people spell words and this really appealed to me because I am serious about words as well. I thought there were good messages in the story, such as friends working together for good and even though things didn’t go as planned, valuable lessons were learnt.
The book is written for ages 7-10 years and I think to understand the concept of the book that these age ranges are a good pick. I believe this book would be perfect for the school classroom or school library where learning about apostrophe’s in a chaotic type of way would be fitting.
In this book we see themes of strong friendships, working together, attention to detail, and recognising that sometimes we need to seek help from grown ups to create change, especially if things aren’t going right!
I recommend this book for anyone that likes a bit of adventure.
