Red Bananas: Snakes and Ladders

At school, the kids call her ‘Weedy Wendy’ – but Wendy isn’t afraid of Slinky, Grandad’s snake. And when she takes Slinky to school and he wriggles out of her bag, brave Wendy will do anything to rescue him! Is this a chance to prove she’s not so weedy after all? A hilarious story of turning the tables from favourite author Michael Morpurgo, with colour pictures and a simple yet fulfilling text for newly fluent solo readers.
