Too Many Nightingales! by Sam Hay


Too Many Nightingales! by Sam Hay

Follow this fabulous twist on the Hans Christian Andersen classic ' The Nightingale'. Maybe you can have too much of a good thing ...when the King and Queen discover a beautiful nightingale singing in their garden, they adore it. But whatever the King and Queen like, the people love! Suddenly the kingdom has gone nightingale crazy! There is only one thing to do - the nightingales must go! Hopscotch Twisty Tales combine carefully controlled text levels and a word count of under 500 words with highly entertaining and original stories. They are perfect for children starting to read independently aged 5 or who read book bands 7-8. Each book also contains fun puzzles at the back to reinforce story sequencing and character and dialogue work.
