Product description

A heart-warming tale of a little boy with big ideas by international best-seller Jacqueline Wilson for Egmont's red banana series. Sara always gets lumbered with looking after her little brother Bernard. And summer project at the local school is no different. There's so much to do - football, judo, trampolining, model car making, computer games and drama. But all Bernard wants to do is clothes design. Soon all the kids, led by Big Dan, are calling Bernard 'Bernadette' and shoving him around. Sara wants to help but she doesn't want to make it worse. But 'Bernadette' is a little boy with big ideas. And he has a plan up his very nicely designed sleeve ...Red bananas are chapter books for newly fluent readers, suitable for NC Level 3 readers. They are carefully designed illustrated books for both entertainment and education, supporting children's understanding of how to read longer books. Red bananas introduce similes and wordplay to encourage an understanding of more literary concepts.
