More About the Author

Julia Donaldson, the 2011-2013 Children's Laureate, is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's most-loved picture books including The Gruffalo and What the Ladybird Heard.

The Gruffalo, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, is now a children's classic and publishing phenomenon; celebrating 15 years in 2014, selling over 3 million copies worldwide, was voted Great Britain's favourite bedtime story on BBC Radio 2 and was adapted and broadcast as an animation on BBC 1 on Christmas Day 2009. The Gruffalo's Child and Room on the Broom are now also films, with Room on the Broom shortlisted for an Academy Award in 2014. Julia Donaldson's most recent books with Axel Scheffler include Superworm (2012), Highway Rat (2011), Tabby McTat (2010), Stick Man (2009) and Tiddler (2008).

Julia Donaldson has also published work with David Roberts, Nick Sharratt, Emily Gravett, Rebecca Cobb, and Lydia Monks. Her collaboration with Lydia Monks began in 2003, with the first collection of Princess Mirror-Belle stories. The fabulously glittery Sugarlump and the Unicorn is their sixth, and most recent, picture book collaboration. She also writes poems, plays, songs and fiction for older children and, together with her husband Malcolm, has performed her wonderful stage shows all over the world.

Product Description

Review

An excellent full range of phonic usage for these stages of text. I feel children would benefit immensely from the scheme. (St Nicholas Primary School, Oxford)

Format: Paperback
This set of books is decent for the sounds and words that are used, but the actual content is not appropriate for young minds. Gran Is Cross introduces impatience and the idea that every accident such as dropping, or spilling something is the end of the world. Very disappointing from Julia Donaldson.

By Clare on 21 Nov. 2011
Format: Paperback
We bought these books for our son who is in Reception year at school and is just starting to read. Unlike many of the other books we've tried, each set of books introduces one simple set of phonic sounds at a time allowing him to recognise each of the different sounds `sh', `ch' etc. without being bombarded by too many different new sounds in the one book. The book length is perfect for him to manage (16 pages) with good little storylines which keep him interested and wanting to read more. He is able to read most of the books by himself with a little initial help on recognising the new sounds - he's picked the books up to read again and again which is always a good sign!

Very highly recommended!

I ordered this book as my son had it as a reading book from school. 2 weeks later school says we still had it, I knew we didn't, but to keep the peace ordered it to replace the one we "lost". On the day it arrived school said they had it all along . But anyway the kids love it, colourful, wording uses phonics so the boys can "sound out" the story without help. Fun read.

My daughters school follows these Songbird books.
She finds them funny as well as fairly easy to read as there is lots of rhyming text in them.

Format: Paperback
This collection is good and engaging for reception students. However, I was not impressed by the choice of words. I am not sure that "dumping" the bottles of milk on the front door and calling the "cops" are really appropriate vocabulary for the age group it is targeted at. I had the same kind of issue with another book from the collection: Pen-Pals where there is actually an incorrect grammatical construction: Page 5: "We met Joan's plane. She is very shy." I am sure teachers would not be happy if students were to write these kind of sentences. Quite disappointing from Julia Donaldson
