Greedylocks by

A charming update of the traditional 'Goldilocks' tale. Greedylocks is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Purple Book Band. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 718-word fiction story features a more demanding text with an extended vocabulary. It is suitable for ages 7 - 8. Greedylocks is part of Ransom Reading Stars, a structured programme for children learning to read. The series has fifteen levels: four phonics levels and eleven book band levels (Pink through to Lime).
