Synopsis

Diego Fandango Yellow Band by Lynne Rickards

Endorsed for reading by Cambridge Assessment International Education, Cambridge Reading Adventures is our international primary reading scheme. Diego Fandango wants to put on a show. His friends help him. Yellow Band books include longer story plots to support the development of inferential skills. There is more emphasis on learners' understanding through reading and less use of illustrations to show meaning. Longer sentences include a wider range of vocabulary while repetition is used for dramatic effect rather than to build high-frequency vocabulary. Contains full teaching support including learning outcomes, curriculum links and follow-up activities.

About the Author

Lynne Rickards

Lynne Rickards was born in Ottawa, Canada but now lives in Glasgow's West End with her family. She first started as an illustrator in her twenties but then decided to go back to University to study French. It wasn't until her forties that she discovered how much she liked writing.

Lynne's children are her main inspiration alongside her editor and agent. Her son is the model for Jack in 'Jack's Bed' because he hates going to bed but loves jumping on it! Lynne is particularly fond also of Jack's spotty leopard with gleaming eyes.

She describes herself as warm, open and fun!

To relax Lynne enjoys reading, making plasticine creatures with her daughter and snuggling with her son to watch Pingu.
