By Kaye Umansky
Illustrated by Chris Jevons

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Brand new red Early Reader by Kaye Umansky, author of the bestselling Pongwiffy books, about The Three Bears (yes, the same ones) and a clever little girl called Belinda.

Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey.

There are two cottages in Honeybear Lane. One has a green door, and one has a blue door. Behind the green door lives Belinda. Behind the blue door live . . . The Three Bears!

Goldilocks has broken Baby's chair, and Daddy Bear doesn't know how to fix it. Can Belinda help make it Just Right again?

Kaye Umansky's new series for Early Readers is just as warm and delightful as her Algy's Amazing Adventures books. Every page is illustrated in full colour by Chris Jevons.
