Series: First Reading Level 3
By Alex Frith
A folktale from Japan retold for beginner readers developing reading stamina through simple, repetitive text. When a village is attacked by a gang of ogres, there’s only one hero who can help them – Peach Boy! He vows to hunt down the Ogre King himself and make him sorry. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.

At home he reads too many comics, and attempts to raise three children with an awful lot of help from his wife, and no help at all from his cat.
