Great for age
This is a charming retelling of the traditional folktale, perfectly matched with witty illustrations by Fred Blunt. Rabbit's burrow is far too small so he goes to Wise Owl for advice. But is Owl serious when he tells Rabbit to invite all his friends and family to stay? It includes easy-to-read text, with fun comprehension puzzles at the end. It is a wonderful addition to the Usborne First Reading series, developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, Principal Lecturer and reading specialist at the University of Roehampton.

First Reading is a levelled reading scheme. Level One titles are designed to be the first real books a beginner reader will tackle, with very light support from an adult. Each book has a single story with six pages of reading-related puzzles. Level Two titles stretch the reader a little more, with more advanced storylines, sentences and vocabulary, plus reading-related puzzles. Level Three titles have longer stories that encourage children to develop reading stamina. Stories have a strong element of repetition to help the reader gain confidence. Level Four titles build readers' stamina still further, with 48 pages devoted entirely to the story, more text on each page and more descriptive vocabulary.
