These books are very thin (not quite what I expected) -

The description of this book collection says 'Pages Varies' but each book is more like a very thin, flimsy pamphlet containing around 8 to 10 pages. Please update the description and show a photo of the books' spines so customers can see how thin they are.

Thanks for your review

We appreciate you taking the time to post this review. We mention in the description that these books are bite-sized and we will add a further line to state that they are designed as an introduction to phonics and reading. As they are aimed at younger children who are just starting to get to grips with words, the books have a number of pages that will not overwhelm them.

We do not currently have the functionality to show the spines of books but this and inside-looks is something we are currently looking into.

BORING - don't buy! -

I regret buying these books... they're so boring and very flimsy. Children prefer Biff, Chip and Kipper.

We're disappointed you were unhappy with your purchase. Written by Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson and the Oxford Reading Tree, these are bite-sized stories that have been designed especially to help children develop their reading skills from an early age.

5* -

A great collection of stories that we are reading alongside the Biff, Chip and Kipper series. A good selection of stories with interesting pictures to look at and discuss. My son loves 'The Big Match' and 'Gran Is Cross', my favourite story is 'Miss, Miss' ;) Highly recommended.

Just a bit boring! -

These books do move through the Reading Levels well. They slowly introduce new phonics. But my son found them pretty boring. He would choose a 'Biff, Chip & Kipper' book over these any day. a bit disappointing really.

Learning to read -

These books are beautiful. Bright colourful pictures and wonderful stories. My daughter loves them and wants to re-read them all the time: great for learning to read.
