Be Careful... : Band 10+/White Plus Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Esther Hernando

Part of the Collins Big Cat series

Paperback / softback


Collins Big Cat supports every primary child on their reading journey from phonics to fluency.

Top authors and illustrators have created fiction and non-fiction books that children love to read.

Book banded for guided and independent reading, there are reading notes in the back, comprehensive teaching and assessment support and ebooks available. When Lucy finds a gold ring with the words "Be careful what you wish for" engraved on it, she soon discovers that it has special powers.

Mayhem starts to ensue as different people find the ring and they are granted their wishes ... but not in the way they expected! The ring's warning is true - you should be careful what you wish for.

But will Lucy learn this in time? Find out in this surreal story by Paul Shipton. White Plus/Band 10+ books provide challenging plots and vocabulary as well as opportunities to practise inference, prediction and reading stamina. Pages 46 and 47 allow children to re-visit the content of the book, supporting comprehension skills, vocabulary development and recall. Ideas for reading in the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities.
