A retelling of the popular story - but this time in a world inhabited by dogs. Meet Artie the puppy and his attempts to please his older brother. The Sword in the Bone is a book-banded reading book for more confident readers, carefully levelled at White Book Band. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 1,128-word fiction story features a more demanding text with extended vocabulary and literary devices. It is suitable for ages 7 - 8. The Sword in the Bone 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).
