The Wooden Horse, Hardback


This is a new title in "Young Reading, Series One" based on the Greek myth, part of the Usborne Young Reading Programme.

It is aimed at children just beginning to read to help build confidence and ability.

The Greek army has been sent to Troy to recapture Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world.

But how can they get inside the heavily defended city?

The Greek commander, Odysseus, comes up with an extraordinary solution - but will his daring plan really work?

It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is Principal Lecturer in Education from Roehampton University and an early reading specialist.

Every title in this series features clear and compelling text accompanied by charming and highly appealing illustrations.

It is designed to motivate children as they learn to read.
