Dockside Extras: The Missing Plumber (Stage 5, Book 3) by John Townsend

It provides an opportunity for children to practise their reading skills at a suitable level with age-appropriate storylines.

The series is set in an everyday world featuring a range of strong characters and stories to which children can relate, and enjoy, providing a unique approach to reading intervention.
