It’s Only Pretend

Ollie really wants to play a princess in Ariana’s story. He stops, confused, when some of the other boys laugh. But when Noah, the new boy, refuses to take any notice of the laughter, Oliver discovers that there is another way…

It’s Not Fair

Marta doesn’t want Noah in her story. She wants her friend Shamika. Ms Fable says they have to take it in turns, but Marta doesn’t think that is fair. When Noah becomes upset because of how Marta is behaving, she begins to realise that playing with other children can open up a whole load of fun she had never imagined possible…

I Can’t Remember

Ella O’Connor desperately wants to tell a story, but every time she opens her mouth, the words disappear.  Will she ever discover the joy of becoming a storyteller and unlock the secret that ideas and stories can be found everywhere?

Each story is accompanied by  notes on how to use the book with young children, along with questions and discussion prompts that can be incorporated into the curriculum.
