Ivan the Terrible is a children’s novel by Anne Fine, published in 2007. It won the Nestlé Children’s Book Prize Silver Award.[1]
Plot[edit]
It is Ivan’s first day of school. He can only speak Russian and it’s Boris’s job to look after him and translate for him. St Edmund’s is a civilized school, but Ivan isn’t civilized. Boris knows that he is going to have trouble teaching Ivan.
Reception[edit]
Chris Stephenson, of Carousel, reviewed the book saying “To work successfully, the book required a delicate balancing-act and Anne Fine, a consummate high-wire performer, doesn’t put a foot wrong.” Vanessa Curtis, of The Herald, reviewed the book saying “”Fine’s writing is comic, her characters are well-drawn and there is a neat twist at the end…” Nicolette Jones, of Sunday Times, reviewed the book saying “…delightfully spiky… …irreverent comedy…”[2]
