from the `Usborne First Reading' series of books.

From the back cover:-

'Once upon a time there was a dragon, a phoenix and a very special pebble......'

32 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Numbered pages. Beautifully illustrated in vibrant colour throughout, further enhanced by relevant expressions.
Complete with bright red ribbon bookmark!
Clear, easy-to-read text with 3 puzzles at the end!
(Oh...and answer pages!)

Example of text:-

`This is the story of Dragon Mountain, Phoenix Mountain and a shining lake.
It beings thousands of years ago, in China.....
Long, long ago, a dragon lived beside a magic river.
A dark forest grew on the other side of the river.
Deep inside the forest lived a phoenix.....'

Daily they go about their independent business until they meet on an island in the river.....and find a shiny pebble.
But this is no ordinary pebble as the pair find out....and when it attracts the Queen of Heaven, things change!

`....`The Dragon and the Phoenix' is based on `The Bright Pearl', a folktale from China.
In Chinese stories, dragons and phoenixes are often shown together. Chinese dragons have lots of magical powers and can even fly without wings.'

I bought this one for my 4 years old daughter who is learning to read. The text is not exactly for the very beginners, but she enjoyed listening to the story and watching the beautiful vibrant pictures.

I got this for my 6 year old. She loved it. While there were one or two words she found hard, she loved the story. It's a new story for her.
