Jewels from a sultan's crown
Part of the Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Greatest Stories series
Elizabeth Laird retells a beautiful set of folk stories from East Africa and the Middle East.
These stories in this collection have travelled across countries, survived through centuries, been retold by generations and have found their way into this book.
They are stories of tricks and jokes, leopards and goats, heroes and fools, sorrows and joys - each one of them a perfectly formed gem.
TreeTops Greatest Stories offers children some of the world's best-loved tales in a collection of timeless classics.
Top children's authors and talented illustrators work together to bring to life our literary heritage for a new generation, engaging and delighting children. The books are carefully levelled, making it easy to match every child to the right book. Each book contains inside cover notes to help children explore the content, supporting their reading development.
Teaching notes on Oxford Owl offer cross-curricular links and activities to support guided reading, writing, speaking and listening.
