Classic storytelling from the former children's laureate Michael Morpurgo for Egmont's red banana series. At school she's called 'weedy Wendy', but Wendy isn't afraid of Slinky - Grandad's snake. When she takes Slinky to school and he wriggles out of her school bag, Wendy will brave anything to rescue him. 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.

Review quote

"Morpurgo was a teacher before he was a writer, and it's easy to see how he kept whole classrooms rapt. That he chose not to restrict his stories to the classroom, but to write them down too, has brought insight, pleasure and excitement to millions." --"Daily Telegraph"
