5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 21 May 2008
By Kady
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Year 6 - there are not enough hours in the day to read a chapter every afternoon such as my old teachers used to do when I was at school. Moreover, I wanted to illustrate to Year 6 children that they can write or read a short story without compromising on the quality of writing. These stories illustrate the point very well. Use adventurous vocabulary. My class really loved the story about the Greenfly - all stories have a twist in the tale and are great for writing frames. Both genders adored them. Short enough to read a story a day. Perfect to give examples of genres of writing. Incorporate into your literacy hour. I found the children trying to take it from my desk and read it at break. Buy it.

There is a whole series of these books and they are truly excellent. They are highly entertaining in their own right but illustrated to my KS2 kids that a short story can be really interesting and effective. Fabtastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for all. 29 July 2011
By addy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This little book is ideal for youngsters who aren't keen readers as well as for those who are. Good for wet and cold winter nights indoors, especially if dad's a good story teller. But anyone will enjoy telling these short tales. Great value.
