And you'll find some of your favourite authors too. Start reading and you won't want to stop.
Booksellers, parents and grandparents alike have been clamouring for a series with stories especially chosen to appeal to children of different ages. The first of four eclectic collections features local Australian storytellers such as Gretel Killeen, Duncan Ball, Margaret Clark and Victor Kelleher, as well as international stars like Malorie Blackman and Joan Aitken.
The stories for each age group have been especially chosen by children's anthologist and publisher, Linsay Knight, and she has tailored them to suit the interests and reading abilities of young readers as, year by year, they gain in confidence and want to be extended. Jobi Murphy, the illustrator and designer, has taken reading requirements, such as ratio of text to illustration and type size, into account when putting the books together. The books look friendly and accessible and are a must for children who like to be read to or who want a good read.
