Press reviews

“The traditional folktale of an old man who tricks an old woman into believing he can make soup from a stone is retold here as part of the excellent value Usborne First Reading series. Quality paper, lively illustrations, short sentences, speech bubbles and simple text recreate the story in a very accessible and attractive hardback format.”
