The Magic Gifts by Russell Punter

Cheated out of a fortune, Chin's luck changes when he meets a mysterious monk. For the old man's gifts of a mat, a spoon and a pair of chopsticks are not as ordinary as they seem. The classic Korean folktale retold with easy-reading text for children who have just started reading alone. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.

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.
