Jack's Little Party (Walker Stories)
Walker Stories support beginner readers making the transition from picture books in an engaging, entertaining and accessible way. Each title features three highly-illustrated, individual short stories linked by one character, so readers can build familiarity and confidence.
A touching story about family life and a boy's birthday treat, from a multi-award-winning storyteller.
It's Jack's birthday and his friend Sam is coming round after school for a little party. It's just Sam and Jack in a small flat, with Jack's mum talking too loudly and getting them to play childish games. Jack's birthday cake is a homemade shark and doesn't look as good as the huge windmill cake that Sam had for his birthday, nor is there a DJ, treasure hunt or a magician. But when Sam's mum comes to collect him, Jack realizes just how lucky he is.
