Synopsis

The Wooden Horse by Russell Punter

This is a new title in Young Reading, Series One based on the Greek myth, part of the Usborne Young Reading Programme. It is aimed at children just beginning to read to help build confidence and ability. The Greek army has been sent to Troy to recapture Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world. But how can they get inside the heavily defended city? The Greek commander, Odysseus, comes up with an extraordinary solution - but will his daring plan really work? It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is Principal Lecturer in Education from Roehampton University and an early reading specialist. Every title in this series features clear and compelling text accompanied by charming and highly appealing illustrations. It is designed to motivate children as they learn to read.

Reviews

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'
