The Usborne Young Reading Program has a lovely selection of classic tales adapted for younger readers. Graded in seven levels, these have just enough stretch in them and yet are not too overwhelming.
- A retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale about the wicked Snow Queen’s attempt to kidnap a boy in the frozen north
- Beautifully and atmospherically illustrated by Alan Marks, winner of the Carnegie Medal
- Part of Young Reading Series 2 for readers growing in confidence.
