Reader reviews

Excellent first 'grown up' reading book
My daughter Polly (age 6) absolutely loved reading this book, she read it aloud from beginning to end and could not put it down. The illustrations are lovely and help to keep a child's interest. I will now be buying further books from this series as they will certainly encourage my child to read at home. She felt an enormous sense of achievement on finishing the book, and can't wait to read some more! Also an excellent way of introducing your child to some classic stories.
