First Reading: Level Three. A traditional story from India about a boy who rescues a fish only to find it has an unique talent. Titles in this level encourage the reader to develop reading stamina, increasing to 48 pages. This will include the main story (up to 450 words) as well as character sheets or maps. The story includes a strong element of reprise or repetition, with the familiarity of repeated language chunks helping the reader to gain in confidence. Subjects include classic folktales from around the world as well as original fiction, all with quirky and humorous illustrations. Will be enjoyed with equal enthusiasm if read alone or together with a parent.
Based on a traditional Indian tale, the story follows Manu, who one day rescues a tiny talking fish from a stream and gets far more than he bargained for.
