About the book

The complete story and original illustrations of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's bestselling picture book, A Squash and a Squeeze, has been specially re-designed into a smaller early reader format. Created with expert advice from a literacy consultant, Let's Read! A Squash and a Squeeze offers children a natural next step on from picture books to support them as they grow in reading confidence.

The little old lady's house is far too small. So the wise old man tells her to squeeze in a crowd of farm animals. She'll be amazed how big her house feels when she pushes them out again!

"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
