The complete story and original illustrations of MARCELLO MOUSE AND THE MASKED BALL by Julie Monks have been specially re-designed into a smaller early reader format. Created with expert advice from a literacy consultant, this new version offers children a natural next step on from picture books to support them as they grow in reading confidence.
Marcello Mouse is off to the Magical Masked Ball. But he hasn't been invited. And as Marcello soon discovers, this ball is no place for a mouse . . .
"This is a great series which, by using well-loved stories, will encourage young children to become enthusiastic, independent readers." - Dr Fiona Maine, Lecturer in Literacy Education, University of Cambridge
