THE BOY FROM THE DRAGON PALACE
retold by Margaret Read MacDonald

The flower-seller has a snotty-nosed boy (and I really have fun with that!!) to make his dreams come true - but excessive greed is his undoing. Just like the fisherman with the magic fish, the Old Lady who lived in the Vinegar Bottle etc

THE BOY WHO LOVED WORDS
by Roni Schotter  

Oh my goodness! What a word feast!  A tough book because of the challenging, wide-ranging vocabulary, but for any child who loves words, this is a total joy. Kidsread really runs the gamut of kids books - from wordless ones to tantalising ones like this!

THE BAD-TEMPERED LADYBIRD
by Eric Ladybird

Another Eric Carle - there are quite a few in the Kidsread catalogue. Good science in this one too!

THE GINGERBREAD MAN
retold by Jim Aylesworth

The only thing wrong with this delightful version? The book isn’t made from gingerbread!
