Synopsis

Let's Read! The Santa Trap by Jonathan Emmett

The complete story and original illustrations of Jonathan Emmett and Poly Bernatene's picture book, THE SANTA TRAP, have been specially re-designed into a smaller early reader format. Created with expert advice from a literacy consultant, this new version offers children a natural next step on from picture books to support them as they grow in reading confidence. Bradley Bartleby is very bad -- and Santa Claus knows it! So when Bradley empties his stocking on Christmas Day to find nothing but a pair of socks, he hatches a devious plan. With dynamite, trapdoors and a tiger, Santa doesn't stand a chance. Does he? 'This is a great series which, by using well-loved stories, will encourage children to become enthusiastic, independent readers.' -- Dr Fiona Maine, Lecturer in Literacy Education, University of Cambridge
