Titles in this 7th and final Level in the Usborne Reading Programme are for fully confident readers who still need to gain the stamina needed for standard length books. At 64 pages in length and up to 5000 words they use advanced sentence structure and vocabulary, and have more complex plots with subplots. Subjects include historical events, biographies and simplified versions of classic novels.

Other Young Reading Series 3 titles include David Copperfield, Samurai, and Story of Pirates.
