This 10-book collection is packed with famous and action-packed tales. From Robinson Crusoe to Robin Hood, they're among the very best adventures of all time.
Brilliantly rewritten by Tony Bradman to appeal to younger readers, each of these stories also features awesome artwork by Horrid Henry illustrator Tony Ross.
Dynamic retellings of Beowulf, Ali Baba and King Arthur are also included in this awe-inspiring introduction to adventure stories.
Great language and sentence structures for such shorty stories. Lots of opportunity for picking out good sentences, phrases and new words, to discuss with my 8-year-old. A lovely introduction to some classics.

Classic adventure collection - 10 books -
A great set of classic adventures, I brought them for my 6-year-old boy, who's reading has really taken off in this last year. Even my 7-year-old daughter has taken a shine to them. Short stories broken up with b/w drawings. A caution for only one of the books, Beowulf, where my daughter thought it a little scary. Excellent value.
A great introduction to classic stories -
These are short introductions to well-known stories (all are around 40 pages with large text and lots of pictures). They don't stint on the gore from the original stories. My son (7) has read them in a single sitting. Great value.
Classic Adventure Collection -
What a super set of stories, absolutely the right length and readability for the just-starting-out child. Opens a young mind to the magic world of stories as entertainment. Very well done.
