" There are 37 books in the 'Gumdrop' series. Through them run exciting and amusing stories and I would like to tell you about some of them"
Val's retelling of these traditional tales has been adapted for classroom teaching. The guided reading editions have text simplified to an appropriate level for the average child. They also include teaching notes for guided reading and writing, and work at text, sentence and word level.
