All children love this book, all the way to Y6!!! I often use it as an introduction to story-telling as it is very simple. It appeals to little ones' imagination and helps to start developing their deduction skills in French; the vocabulary they pick up from it is amazing! You can make it very interactive too. I have read it in one sitting or over 3 sessions before: the children could not wait to find out what happened next! It is an all-round fun and educational book which has even in the past led to discussions about safety... Actually we love it so much we now own a class set and are currently basing our scheme of work with Y3 at Roseberry Primary around it!
