Each of these four exciting new titles in the "Young Reading" series is a classic story or fable, retold with simple text to delight and inspire any child who is just beginning to read. This key series was developed in conjunction with reading expert, Allison Kelly from Roehampton University. Every title has clear and compelling text that allows children to build their burgeoning reading skills and is accompanied by charming and highly appealing illustrations. These are sumptuous hardbacks with a ribbon marker and foiled covers.
