Author(s): Sam Hay
The "Flying Fur Balls" are star acro-cats, drawing huge feline audiences. The latest recruit to the Fur Balls, Pete, is amazing - one night he is fired out of a cannon onto the high wire. He succeeds but his fur catches alight. He proceeds to unzip his 'skin' - Pete is really a mouse! With the audience furious, the other Fur Balls have to protect Pete. The next week he buys a new catsuit and relaunches his career as Pedro, the 'new' acrocat!"The I Am Reading" series provides just the right balance of challenge and support for newly independent readers. Large, easy-to-read type, satisfying stories by top writers and cheerful full-colour pictures help children make the transition from picture books to chapter books. Each book includes a bookmark flap, tips for beginner readers and either short, numbered chapters or two short stories.
