The Inch Prince, Hardback

The Inch Prince Hardback

Illustrated by Matt Ward

Part of the Usborne First Reading series


This is a new title in the fantastic "First Reading" series, aimed at children who are beginning to read.

When Mrs Ping's wish to have a child is granted by a passing fairy, she and her husband become the parents of a little boy who's just one inch tall.

Issy, as they name him, doesn't grow any taller. But what he lacks in height, he makes up for in ambition.

He goes to the Emperor and asks for a job. But is he up to the task of becoming a royal bodyguard?

It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.

It is a great value quality hardback with ribbon marker guaranteed to foster pride in book ownership.
