Synopsis

King Midas and the Gold by Alex Frith

This is a new title in the fantastic First Reading series, aimed at children who are beginning to read. When good King Midas helps an elderly man find his way home he is granted his fondest wish to turn anything he touches into pure gold. At first, this gift seems like the most wonderful thing to have ever happened but he soon learns that you should be careful what you wish for. This key series was developed in conjunction with reading expert Allison Kelly from the University of Surrey, a reading specialist. 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.
