Author(s): Minna Lacey Illustrated by Paddy Mounter
This is a brand new addition to "Usborne Young Reading Series 2", which is aimed at children whose reading ability is beginning to grow, and helps build confidence and ability. It offers a lively and engaging look at the story of the Olympic Games, from its foundations in Ancient Greece to the global spectacles seen by modern audiences. It is humorously illustrated throughout by Paddy Mounter. It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.
