Oxford Reading Tree Traditional Tales: Level 4: Hans in Luck by Paeony Lewis, Nikki Gamble, Thelma Page

Hans in Luck is a German folk tale. Hans is on his way home to visit his mum, but on every step of his journey bad luck befalls him. As Hans tries to change his luck along the way, will he ever be lucky? This humorous story written by Paeony Lewis and charmingly illustrated by Andres Martinez Ricci will capture your child's imagination! It has been sensitively rewritten to enable your child to read it with confidence whilst capturing the magic of the original tale. There are useful tips for parents and an engaging story map inside the book to help you and your child retell the story together. The Oxford Reading Tree Traditional Tales series includes 40 of the best known stories from all over the world, which have been passed down for generations. They are a perfect introduction to different cultures, traditions and morals. All the stories are carefully levelled to Oxford Reading Tree levels and matched to the phonics progression in Letters and Sounds, enabling your children to read the stories independently. Books contain inside cover notes to support children in their reading. Help with childrens reading development is also available at www.oxfordowl.co.uk.
