The Tricky Troll and the Billy Goats Gruff by Ms Cynthia Rider


The Tricky Troll and the Billy Goats Gruff by Ms Cynthia Rider

A story-based approach to phonics practice helping children to read with confidence. Who will cross the tricky troll's bridge to get to the fresh green grass? The Tricky Troll and the Billy Goats Gruff is for children in Year 1/Primary 2. This traditional tale has been retold by experienced children's author Cynthia Rider. The text uses humour and rhyme to appeal to children and to reinforce the phonic focus (br, cr, fr, gr, tr) throughout. The highly attractive illustrations are by Melanie Williamson. Each children's book includes notes on the inside back cover to support use in guided group reading sessions.
