This is a
very carefully written book produced by Maverick Books. It is an orange band book. This means that it is approximately 300-450 words per story with one story per book.
There is a quiz page at the end of each story. The story is mostly decodable at Letters and Sounds Phase 5. Up to five non-decodable words are included.
Scotty and his tractor outwit the fox in this story set at an agricultural show.
There are only a few words on each page and the picture mainly illustrate with very little extra detail in them. The text is ragged right. The font is plain and quite large. It has simple ‘a’s and ‘g’s.
The quiz at the end of the book introduces a fun element but also offers the new reader the opportunity to study the text in more detail.
