Three folk tales from around the world retold by the wonderful storyteller Gervase Phinn. In the first, a golden turtle offers a kindly fisherman riches beyond his wildest dreams. In the secod, Amparo’s daughter looks sweet, but when she’s determined to do something nothing gets in her way. In the third, a naughty leprechaun gets a big shock!

• Sapphire/Band 16 books offer longer reads to develop children's sustained engagement with texts and are more complex syntactically.

• A wanted’ poster on pages 54 and 55 for the leprechaun in the last story helps children to recap all the naughty things he did.
