Mandy Stanley - Author

About the Author

Mandy Stanley was born in Lowestoft, Suffolk. She has a BA from Nottingham University which led her initially into a career in fashion. A subsequent interest in the drawing and illustrative areas of her occupation, coupled with an earlier course at Great Yarmouth College of art and design, initiated a move into freelance illustrative work.

Early work on baby products was followed by illustrations in childrens books. The natural progression was then to create her own characters, beginning with ‘Babe’.

Mandy has a great love of films particularly children’s films and regularly attends theatre and ballet. She has won awards for soft toy designs for young children on sale throughout the country.

She continues to work as a designer and illustrator in Suffolk.

The Rabbits' House Level 7

The Rabbits' House Level 7

Author: Mandy Stanley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/08/2016

Collins Arabic Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11. The series is structured with reference to the learning progression of Arabic at nursery and primary schools researched especially for Collins. This carefully graded approach allows children to build up their reading knowledge of Arabic step by step. Level 7 books include story lines with more episodes in time sequence, and may include imaginary happenings in the context of familiar experiences. There is still repetition but more variation in pattern and more new words are introduced than in lower levels. Non-fiction titles bring in simple non-fiction tools, such as diagrams, labels and captions. Additional vowel marks that encourage the flow of pronunciation are introduced at this level. Verbal sentences of up to 8-10 words with repeating and accessible actions appear at this level. Double spacing is used between words to ensure children see where each new word in a sentence begins and ends. Three young rabbits have built their homes from straw, wood and bricks. But will their houses be strong enough to stop the Big Bad Wolf from destroying them? This beautiful retelling of the traditional tale is written and illustrated by award-winning illustrator Mandy Stanley. Children can recap the journey of the three rabbits and the big bad wolf using the story map on pages 14-15.
