Synopsis

Collins Big Cat The Magic Egg: Band 02A/Red A by Vivian French, Karen Donnelly

When a hungry boy wishes for an egg he gets a surprise - a magic egg that makes everything he wishes for come true with hilarious consequences. But in the end does he ever really get what he wants? This traditional tale is beautifully illustrated by Karen Donnelly to set the scene and encourage discussion. * Red A/Band 2A books offer predictable text with familiar objects and actions, combined with simple story development. * Text type: A story with predictable structure and patterned language. * A circular story map on pages 14-15 shows the boys journey and the consequence of each of his wishes, providing a wealth of speaking and listening opportunities. * Curriculum links: Personal, Social and Emotional Development
