The Prisoner of Zenda by Sarah Courtauld


The Prisoner of Zenda by Sarah Courtauld

The classic swashbuckling adventure by Anthony Hope retold for children ready to tackle longer and more complex stories. When Rudolf Rassendyll, a young Victorian gentleman, travels to Ruritania, all he expects is a pleasant summer holiday. But when the King is kidnapped, he soon becomes involved in a plot to rescue him. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.


'Irresistible for children learning to read' - Child Education Plus; 'The Usborne Young Reading Program has a lovely selection of classic tales adapted for younger readers. Graded in seven levels, these have just enough stretch in them and yet are not too overwhelming' - The Irish Sunday Independent; 'Crack reading and make confident and enthusiastic readers with this fantastic reading programme' - Julia Eccleshare'

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
