A range of simple stories for new readers, with beautiful colour illustrations.

Whenever Roo visits Grandpa, she loves exploring the seaside cove near his cottage. But on her latest stay, Grandpa explains that he can't go down there any more - the path is too steep and overgrown for him to manage. Instead, Grandpa tells Roo the stories behind the many objects that fill his house. All of Grandpa's stories feature the cove and Roo realizes that now, even though they're so close to the sea, Grandpa is cut off from it. Is there anything she can do to bring Grandpa to the place he loves the most?

An inspiring tale about the importance of sharing stories, by Sylvia Bishop, the author of ERICA'S ELEPHANT and THE BOOKSHOP GIRL.



This wonderful compact, hardback book is sure to inspire children who are developing their reading fluency. It beautifully combines colourful illustrations and detailed story plot. The authors have carefully constructed the storyline to include the use of adjectives and imagery to tighten the engagement of the reader.

A Sea of Stories focuses on Roo, a little girl who loves nothing more than to visit her Grandad. It is the realisation that her Grandad had led a fascinating life doing amazing things that leads her on her adventure. The ending is heartwarming and will appeal to children and parents alike.
