Book band: Gold Quizzed for Accelerated Reader Ideal for ages:5+
This new series from Bloomsbury Education is geared at turning children into independent readers. Not only will the books give youngsters a boost into solo reading, they’ll also make it easier and more enjoyable for the adults helping children as they come with useful tips and notes. The books are short and divided into chapters thereby breaking the story into manageable chunks. The adventures are lively and fast-moving though told via short sentences and carefully chosen vocabulary: some words are highlighted in the Tips for Grown Ups section on the inside cover, so that children can learn them and their meanings. Full colour illustrations amplify the action and make the books really attractive to look at too. Written by favourite authors, these are well worth collecting and are just the thing for children ready for reading.
Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. They are packed with gorgeous colour illustrations and include inside cover notes to help adults reading with children, as well as ideas for activities related to the stories.
Alice the anteater has a dream - she's going to be a film star! So she finds herself a pair of high-heeled sandals, a frilly satin dress and some film-star sunglasses and sets off for Hollywood.

This dreamy and glamorous tale from award-winning author Karen Wallace is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1. It features engaging illustrations from Katy Halford, and quirky characters young readers will find hard to resist.

I was born in Canada and grew up in a log cabin in Quebec. My childhood was spent playing in the forests and messing about on the Gatineau River. It was a wonderful wild time and in many ways is the source of all of my writing. Children's writers are an eccentric bunch. Someone once said they never grow up and in many ways, this is probably true in my case. I write books for children from five to fifteen years old.
