Hilarious mismatches of characters with their careers in these fiction chapter books that help children gain confidence as newly independent readers

Horrible Histories meets Wimpy Kid in these terribly funny tales. When Joe runs off for a life of adventure on a pirate ship he thinks he's sure to get rich. But he doesn't realise he's boarded the ship of the fearsome and terrifying Captain Blackbeard!

Race Further with Reading is the perfect tool to build reading confidence with illustrated stories in manageable bite-size chapters, following on a level from the Race Ahead with Reading series with stories of 2,000 words. The books are perfect for children aged 6-8 or who read book band 11.
