This is a new title in the "Usborne Reading Programme" based on the famous Russian folktale, which is aimed at children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories. Don Quixote has read so many books about knights and wizards, damsels and elves, he's gone completely nuts and wants to be a knight himself. Recruiting Sancho Panza as his squire, he sets off on an adventure that has amazed readers for centuries. It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.
"Irresistible for children learning to read" - Child Education Plus; "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." - The Irish Sunday Independent; "Crack reading and make confident and enthusiastic readers with this fantastic reading programme" - Julia Eccleshare
