Early Years - Key Stage 1 Learn More
A fun re-imagining of a classic story, ideal for children practising their reading at home or in school. You've probably heard the story of Cinderella; how her father married for the second time and how his wife was a nasty, mean woman.
But did you know Cinderella had a friend called Perkin who worked in the garden?
She wasn't the only one the fairy godmother helped. You see, it all started with seven, big seeds... This magical retelling of a classic fairytale from bestselling author Patricia Cleveland-Peck is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1.
It features magical illustrations from Hannah Marks and quirky characters young readers will find hard to resist. 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. 'Every child needs a Bloomsbury Young Reader. Fun, stretching, just the right length, full of adventurous vocabulary and punctuation.' (Julie-Ann McCulloch, Teacher)Book Band: GoldIdeal for ages 6+
