Synopsis

The Golden Turtle and Other Tales Band 16/Sapphire by Gervase Phinn

Three folk tales from around the world retold by the wonderful storyteller Gervase Phinn. In the first, a golden turtle offers a kindly fisherman riches beyond his wildest dreams. In the secod, Amparo's daughter looks sweet, but when she's determined to do something nothing gets in her way. In the third, a naughty leprechaun gets a big shock! * Sapphire/Band 16 books offer longer reads to develop children's sustained engagement with texts and are more complex syntactically. * A `wanted' poster on pages 54 and 55 for the leprechaun in the last story helps children to recap all the naughty things he did. * Text type: Three stories from other cultures. * This book is paired with The Ultimate World Quiz, a non-fiction information book full of facts about our planet. * Curriculum links: Geography: Passport to the world; Citizenship: Choices, Living in a diverse world. * This book has been quizzed for Accelerated Reader
