Rory decides to make a robot, but he also makes a lot of mess. Mum is not happy when she finds out!
The Tiddlers series features fun stories with a word count of fewer than 50 words for children who are just starting to read.
word list at the start of the book allows you to check the child's
ability to decode and understand each word before reading, providing a
fully supported first reading experience. And a puzzle at the end of the
story encourages rereading for pleasure.
Elizabeth Dale always dreamed of being a writer but somehow got side-tracked into studying for a physics degree, followed by health service management. When her children were born she finally returned to her dream, writing thousands of short stories for magazines all over the world. Re-discovering a love of children`s books while reading to her daughters, she decided to turn her hand to writing them - and has now published over twenty books for children, including picture books and junior fiction. Rory`s Robot is her first title for Franklin Watts.
Writing is her full-time job, but also her favourite activity. She also enjoys reading, gardening, walking, and being in the country. Her favourite children`s books include Walk Two Moons, The Selfish Giant, Cosmic, and Someone Else`s Life. She loves watching cosy sentimental films, such as You`ve Got Mail, Return to Me, and While You Were Sleeping, as well as classic old films starring Cary Grant, Fred Astaire and Doris Day.
Elizabeth is married, with three daughters, and lives in a village in West Sussex. Her eldest daughter, Katie, is also a children`s author with Hachette.
