Devising an early reader isn’t an easy process, which is why publishing houses often work with best-selling children’s authors. ‘The younger your audience, the harder it is to write in a really good quality literary style,’ explains Prue. ‘An author can spend hours and hours on a sentence of just 10 words.’ Early readers also help to boost confidence. ‘Learning to read is a bit like learning to ride a bike,’ Prue explains. ‘At this stage, children are wobbling along. They want to do it, but they’re very vulnerable, and the worst thing you can do is keep giving them increasingly difficult books that challenge them too much. Children need quality writing in an accessible style where they can read most of the words with ease.’

This classic madcap tale was the first ever early reader, published in 1957, and is a must-read for every primary-school child.

They’re carefully developed to tell a great story, but in a format that children are able to read and enjoy by themselves, using familiar vocabulary and appealing illustrations.
