Dr Singh, Pirate King: Genie Street: Ladybird Read it yourself


Dr Singh Pirate King is book four of Ladybird's Genie Street fiction series. This exciting new ebook contains two short chapter stories for independent readers who are ready and want to read real fiction for the first time.

In Dr Singh Pirate King we once more follow Daisy and Tom as they journey to Lampland, this time in search of their friend Jinx the cat. Their adventure sees the children navigate the seas on-board Captain Yellowbeard's ship, battle the evil Captain Corkscrew and his crew and go on a pirate treasure hunt to find the captain's missing treasure!

In the second story - Mrs Proctor Monster Doctor - Tom and Daisy have been given a Special Delivery by Genie Street's postman, Mr Mistry, that they must deliver to Lampland's animal doctor. Along the way they encounter many bizarre beasts, including a rather grumpy monster called Fang!

Genie Street is the next step up from Ladybird's Read it yourself Level 4. With short chapters, simple vocabulary and a clear layout, these ebooks will encourage and build confidence when reading. Other stories in this series include Mrs Kramer Dragon Tamer, Mr Chan Rocket Man and Mrs Greene Mermaid Queen.
