Book Band: White (Ideal for ages 6+)
A delightfully funny story, ideal for children practising reading at home or in school.
It’s time for Fizzy to go to bed, but next door, Mrs Crumbleboom and her band are having a party. Fizzy is desperate to join in the fun. Will Mum let her stay up just a little bit longer? This family comedy from Ireland's Children's Laureate Sarah Crossan, starring the characters from Fizzy and Bandit, is perfect for Key Stage 1 (KS1) children who are learning to read by themselves. It features illustrations from Nicola Colton, creator of the Jasper and Scruff books, and a feisty heroine children will love.
Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. The series is ideal for both home and school, with gorgeous colour illustrations, tips for parents, and fun activity ideas. Online guided reading and teaching notes, written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), are available at bloomsburyreaders.com.
