Synopsis

The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe by Russell Punter

This is a new title in the fantastic First Reading series, aimed at children who are beginning to read. Based on the classic nursery rhyme, this is the story of an old woman's search for a larger home. But just where do you buy a boot big enough for twenty children? This key series was developed in conjunction with reading expert Allison Kelly from the University of Surrey. Every title has clear and compelling text that allows children to build their burgeoning reading skills and is accompanied by charming and highly appealing illustrations.

About the Author

Russell Punter

Russell’s earliest ambition was to become an artist, well third earliest actually, after dating Marie Osmond and becoming the first 9 year old to play the part of Doctor Who.

He joined Usborne Publishing as a designer in 1987 but since discovering his literary side in 2003, he has written over twenty books for the company.

He loves writing for children and his biggest fan is his niece, although he’s not letting the fact that she’s not yet old enough to read bother him.
