The classic story of The Enormous Turnip retold with simple text and delightful illustrations. When the farmer can’t pull a turnip out of the ground, he enlists his entire family to help him. But just how big can a turnip grow?! Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton. Also available as an ebook with narration in British English (on tablets that support audio).
Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.

“For every parent, child and teacher weary of the monotony of the average reading scheme, Usborne’s First Reading series will offer rays of sunlight. The books are carefully levelled and offer a huge variety of accessible and fun, fiction and non-fiction.”
