A charming update of the traditional 'Goldilocks' tale, Greedylocks is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Purple Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illutrated throughout, this 718-word fiction story is suitable for ages 7 - 8.

Greedylocks features a more demanding text with an extended vocabulary. With a wider vocabulary, the characters are more three dimensional, and illustrations are less important. It encourages more indeendent reading.

Greedylocks is part of Ransom Reading Stars, a structured programme for children learning to read. The series has fifteen levels: four phonics levels and eleven book band levels (Pink through to Lime).
