This is a new title in the fantastic ‘First Reading’ series, part of the Usborne Young Reading Programme, based on a tale from Japanese folklore.
It is aimed at children who are beginning to read. When Momotaro was found as a baby in a giant peach everyone knew he was destined for great things. But when he grows up to become a brave warrior, he must journey to Ogre Island to reclaim his village’s lost possessions.
This title is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.
It features a great value quality hardback with ribbon marker guaranteed to foster pride in book ownership.
