The Pied Piper of Hamelin - Read it Yourself with Ladybird Level 4 by

This is the classic fairy tale. When the town of Hamelin is overrun by rats, the Pied Piper arrives to sort out the problem with a magic tune. But what will happen when the mayor refuses to pay him? Read it yourself with Ladybird is one of Ladybird's best-selling series. For over thirty-five years it has helped young children who are learning to read develop and improve their reading skills. Each Read it yourself book is very carefully written to include many key, high-frequency words that are vital for learning to read, as well as a limited number of story words that are introduced and practised throughout. Simple sentences and frequently repeated words help to build the confidence of beginner readers and the four different levels of books support children all the way from very first reading practice through to independent, fluent reading. The wide range of classic fairy tales, favourite characters and exciting modern stories in the Read it yourself series appeal to all children, whatever their interests, and have bright, detailed pictures to help support the text. Each book has been carefully checked by educational consultants and can be read independently at home or used in a guided reading session at school. Further content includes comprehension puzzles, helpful notes for parents, carers and teachers, and book band information for use in schools. The Pied Piper of Hamelin is a Level 4 Read it yourself title, ideal for children who are ready to read longer stories with a wider vocabulary and are keen to read independently.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
