Please note: This collection is shrink-wrapped and does not come in a box.

With the original stories from the likes of Chris Riddell, Pamela Duncan Edwards and the author-and-illustrator dream team of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, this 20-book collection is full of tales children will want to return to again and again.

Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child are all featured in the collection alongside the excellent Dinosaur Sleepover, Marcello Mouse and the Masked Ball and Monsters: An Owner's Guide. Timeless tales that remain just as fresh and exciting after many re-readings, these are the kind of stories children will already be familiar with and they're sure to enjoy reading them over and over again as they begin to read independently.

The Let's Read series of books have seen the original stories redesigned so that they fit into a smaller early reader format - the natural next step on from picture books. These books will help young readers gain confidence as they begin to tackle some of the words on their own - with a little help from Mummy or Daddy. A brilliant collection to inspire a lifelong love of reading!

Popper bag not included.

Size is not the actual size of the books -

The books are a size 14.5 x 19 cm each. The dimensions mentioned on the website are the overall dimensions of the plastic popper bag as the books are stacked in there in two rows. This is misleading and rather easy to solve by The Book People by mentioning this in the description. Apart from that, the books look nice and one book will be a quick and easy story before bed time.

Lets Read! Collection -

I have just received my latest brochure in the post. I too thought that when it said the set was "created in conjunction with a literacy consultant offering children the next step up from picture books as they grow in reading confidence", the amount of text had been increased. But my complaint is that in December 2014 you had responded to a similar comment saying you would amend the description and this would not have appeared to happen. On a positive note, I think these books are exactly what we are looking for for our P3s. There is a wide range of ability and where some can choose small books from the shelves others are still only managing the picture books which are in floor cubes as they are larger but more suited to the needs of P1 and P2. I would be very grateful if you could recommend any other small books like this suitable for seven and eight-year-olds who are reading at a slightly younger level.

Thanks for your comments

Hi, thanks for your comments. We removed the sentence about the books being created alongside a literary consultant from our online description back in December. We hope you enjoy the books. Other books for similar age groups that have proven popular with our customers are the Early Readers Collection (enter Product code LRHH); Dinosaur Cove (DINC); Winnie the Witch (WWTF); and our Practise Your Phonics with Traditional Tales box set (PPTT).

An excellent collection... -

My boy is only three so too young to read these himself, but, suffice to say he loves this collection of books! They're a handy size for popping in his backpack when we go out, and a good size for his little hands. I actually like the fact that they're just smaller versions of the 'proper' book...plus, all these books for this price is a bargain...regardless of the size!

Excellent collection of stories but... -

... you should change the dimensions regarding the books on your website. Was quite surprised to see them smaller than stated. But the stories are very good and the books have great quality!!!



TBP says: Thanks for your review. The dimensions stated were correct for the full pack packed into its bag. We have now amended these dimensions so theat they are correct for each book. Thanks!

Fantastic little set! -

I bought this set for my 6-year-old. It contains smaller versions of the original books in a handy sealable bag. We find it very useful to read while we are waiting in the car for older children to finish afternoon activities. In fact, the set is always in the car! Absolutely perfect for my 6-year-old to read.
