Elephant Bill and Bandoola’s Daring Escape (Engage Literacy Dark Red)

It’s 1942 – the middle of World War II – and Elephant Bill, his Elephant Company, and a group of refugees are in danger of being captured by the invading Japanese. They must flee their work camp in Burma as soon as possible to keep ahead of the enemy. Bandoola, Elephant Bill’s favourite elephant leads the way. On their way to safety in India, they face many dangers through the jungle and across five mountain ranges. Will Bandoola and Elephant Bill lead them to safety? Or will they be captured by the enemy?

Graded readers, or reading programmes, are series of levelled books that help children to learn to read. As children progress up the levels they develop the skills to read more independently.

Engage Literacy is the new award-winning reading scheme from Raintree that introduces engaging and contemporary content to motivate and support early readers while providing a reliable and instructional framework. All titles are precisely levelled, with new vocabulary being introduced and reinforced throughout the levels.
