Scruffy the cat is not well. He hurt his paw whilst playing in the garden and he must go to the vet. Will Scruffy be OK? Scruffy Goes to the Vet is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Green Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 196-word first-person account is suitable for ages 5 - 6.

Scruffy Goes to the Vet features a longer, less structured text with a more extended vocabulary. It has more varied and longer sentences, no repetition, and includes made-up words. Story events are longer and there are more words on each page.

Scruffy Goes to the Vet 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).
