The complete story and original illustrations of Timothy Knapman and Ben Cort's picture book, LITTLE OGRE'S SURPRISE SUPPER, have been specially re-designed into a smaller early reader format. Created with expert advice from a literacy consultant, this new version offers children a natural next step on from picture books to support them as they grow in reading confidence. Everyone knows that ogres eat children. Except Jack. So when Little Ogre says, I want you for supper! Jack is delighted to be invited. Will he realise that he is the supper before it's too late? 'This is a great series which, by using well-loved stories, will encourage children to become enthusiastic, independent readers.' -- Dr Fiona Maine, Lecturer in Literacy Education, University of Cambridge
