Synopsis

The Stonecutter by Lynne Benton

This is a new title in the fantastic First Reading series, part of the Usborne Reading Programme . It is based on a traditional Japanese folktale. It is aimed at children who are beginning to read. The Stonecutter spends his days cutting stone from a mountain, wishing he was rich - but when he is heard by a mountain spirit who grants his wish, he soon realises that there is more to life than money...It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, Principal Lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University. Every title in this series has clear and compelling text that allows children to build their burgeoning reading skills and is accompanied by charming and highly appealing illustrations.
