There’s something magical about hearing children chuckling to themselves as they read a book, isn’t there? This set of three fantastically funny books is the perfect recipe for a laughter-filled break!
3 funny chapter books with activity packs
- These funny, quirky books deliver laugh-out-loud humour, page-turning mystery and touch on real-life family and friendship issues too.
- These three books were extremely well-received when we sent them out to members of our award-winning subscription book club.
- They are perfectly pitched for readers aged roughly 8 to 12 and both boys and girls will enjoy the stories and fantastic characters.
- Each book comes with an 8-page A5 activity pack that was created specifically to accompany it. We include book club-style questions, word puzzles, facts, jokes, craft projects, a recipe and more, all inspired by the content of that particular book.
- These activities really add to the fun of the bundle but also serve a special purpose – helping children connect more deeply with what they’ve read and how it relates to their own lives.
** This bundle saves you 10% on buying each book and activity pack separately. **
