RRP: $287.99

This book is how to enjoy reading, how to get involved with the story, being part of the drama and flying with your imagination. But there is more: settle into a comfy chair, make adventurous choices, use dramatic voices. The text explains ‘what to do’ while colourful cartooned illustrations show the ‘how to do’ in this clever book about the habits of reading.
