The Bad Guys - Episode 9 and 10 by Aaron Blabey (White Reading Level)


BAD GUYS 9 THE SKY GOES DARK. THE CITY TREMBLES. THE SCREAMS BEGIN... and everyone's favourite Wolf has a LOT of explaining to do. Big? Yep. Bad? You betcha. Unmissable? YESSSSSSSSSSS. But seriously, will someone tell those whiny Three Little Pig dudes to stop saying "We told you so"? Get under a table and put on a sensible helmet.

Whip out your war cry and pull on your party pants. It's the ULTIMATE BATTLE between BAD and BAAAAAAD! It's season finale time, playas!

And now, all around you, the songs of other children across the globe are singing.







The Bolds go Wild by Julian Clary (Grey Reading Level) 


The Bolds are very surprised to be visited by Fred's mother, Granny Imamu. She's travelled all the way from Africa, and now she's here, she does not approve of what she finds. Hyenas, living as people - whatever next! Granny Imamu starts to stir up mischief with twins Bobby and Betty, encouraging them to get in touch with their beastly side at school.

And then the twins' teacher comes to the Bolds with a rather unusual problem: her grown-up son Jeffrey just isn't like other people. He's rather hairy, doesn't much like to talk, and loves to monkey about. If animals can become people, could it happen the other way around?



Too Small Tola by Atinuke (Brown Reading Level) 


Tola lives in a flat in Lagos with her sister, Bola, who is very clever; her brother, Femi, who is very fast; and Grandmummy, who is very bossy. Tola proves to be stronger than she seems when she goes to market with Grandmummy and manages to carry home a basket full of yams and vegetables, chilli peppers and fish.

When the taps in the flat don't work, it's Tola who brings water from the well, and it's Tola who saves the day when Mr Abdul, the tailor, needs his goods to be delivered quickly.
