Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Booksellers, parents and grandparents alike have been clamouring for a series with stories especially chosen to appeal to children of different ages. These eclectic collections feature local Australian storytellers such as Gretel Killeen, Deborah Abela, Paul Jennings, Victor Kelleher and Andy Griffiths, as well as international stars like Malorie Blackman and Margaret Mahy. The stories for each age group have been especially chosen by children's anthologist and publisher, Linsay Knight, and she has tailored them to suit the interests and reading abilities of young readers as, year by year, they gain in confidence and want to be extended. Jobi Murphy, the illustrator and designer, has taken reading requirements, such as ratio of text to illustration and type size, into account when putting the books together. The books look friendly and accessible and are a must for children who like to be read to or who want a good read.
