These two new gift editions in the Usborne Young Reading series are titles to treasure, published in hardback with a ribbon marker. Each title is a classic: Johanna Spyri's Heidi is beautifully retold, following the exploits of the orphaned youngster who is sent to live in the Alps with her grumpy grandfather; and the classic tale of Jack and the Beanstalk is humorously revisited. Usborne's Young Reading Series was developed in conjunction with experts from the University of Surrey and is designed to encourage independent reading. Each title has clear, engaging text and is accompanied by stunning original illustrations.
