Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 877-word fiction story features a more demanding text with extended vocabulary and literary devices. It is suitable for ages 7 - 8. Frank N.

The series has fifteen levels: four phonics levels and eleven book band levels (Pink through to Lime).

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
