I bought this book for a (part of a) sixth birthday present and it was a huge success. It's just right for early readers to manage on their own. The favourite story was about a princess so I'm not sure if it might have a slight bias towards girls but I don't think that matters too much at this stage. I'm now looking for other titles at this reading level that would prove to be as popular

We have had two nights of nightmares/interrupted sleep following the reading of 'The Thrush Girl' in which a small girl escapes burning at the stake and beheading. My daughter is six, but I would not recommend this for children of any age. The quality of the other stories is disappointing too: no appeal or spark.

I ordered this for my 6.5 year old son (and then consequently as presents for his classmates) and we are really enjoying the stories.

We usually snuggle up and I read these stories to him (they're an ideal length), although he has attempted a few stories on his own and done quite well! They're aren't many illustrations so I think that's what makes it a bit hard going when he reads alone. His reading ability is accelerating at such a speed it certainly won't be long before he really enjoys reading this book alone.
I wanted to encourage the next 'level' of reading which is books without pictures and I was pleasantly surprised at the lack of complaints on his part!

I would definitely recommend this book for the in-between stage when they are just starting to read alone. Great value for money too!

Bought for my Gand daughter and was disappointed with the look of , content good but does not look appealing to a six year old girl. It did not look as good when it arrived as it did in the picture.

This is terrible, a bunch of poor, badly written stories which didn't hold my six year olds attention. There are so many good books for kids, this is not one of them!

Bought this for our eldest granddaughter and she just loves it. Sh eloves books and writing little stories so books like this help fire her imagination.

Stories may be ok but most 6 year olds would need pictures . My grand daughter wasn't interested in this book at all.

The Puffin collections of stories for various ages are well chosen and long favourites recur. The stories for six-year-olds has some illustrations, but they are chosen for reading aloud. A forward six-year-old may enjoy reading them by his or herself.
