Rebecca at the Funfair Band 03/Yellow by Frances Ridley

Rebecca went to the funfair with mum and dad. She didn't like the hall of mirrors, and the rollercoaster made her turn green - but when she won lots of prizes on a stall, she decided that she liked it after all! The funny illustrations show Rebecca's gradual change of opinion, and include lots of details for early readers to talk about. * Yellow (Band 3) books offer varied sentence structure and natural langauge. This book is told in rhyme. * Text type - A story with a familiar setting. * A map of the fair is included on pages 14 and 15 which can be used to check comprehension. * Curriculum links - Maths: Shape, space and measures.

About the Author

Frances grew up with three younger brothers. She kept them in order by telling them stories and writing plays for them to perform (but they never turned up for rehearsals). Now she has two children of her own to boss around, called Marianne and George. They give her lots of ideas for books. Frances thinks that the best time to mull over ideas is when you are doing something completely different - like sleeping. She suggests you don't try this at school, though, as your teacher might not agree. Adrian Bradbury was born in Manchester and worked as a PE teacher before moving overseas to teach English in Europe, the Middle East and Far East. After returning to England he worked as Deputy Head in three schools and now divides his time between teaching and writing. As well as writing educational materials for HarperCollins and other publishers, he also writes humorous football books for children. His hobbies include playing the piano and all sports.
