Synopsis

Cow Takes a Bow by Russell Punter

When Brown Cow visits the circus, she ends up stepping in for the clown who hasn't turned up for work. She slips, trips, drops things and loses her hat, and thinks that she's done a pretty bad job - but the ringmaster is thrilled. A lively story, specially written to develop phonemic awareness, this book is ideal for reading aloud and for children who are beginning to read for themselves. Simple, phonically repetitive text is a great way to develop essential language and early reading skills, and guidance notes are included to give parents confidence as they help their child learn to read.

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.
