“Love the classics!”
I got these for my boys 3&5 to start reading chapter books to them. I've always loved the classics and it is important to me that they grow up with them too. They love these stories! And I enjoy reading them just as much! They are long enough to have decent plot and story line but short enough to read in one setting and keep their attention.
“My son, 7yrs, loved this book”
Great book for children who want to move on in reading but cannot cope with a book that has no pictures. The stories are full of mystery and adventure - my son loved this and read it from cover to cover. He has 5 of these books now - and cannot wait until the new releases are out.
