Two new and exciting non-fiction titles in the hugely successful "Usborne Young Reading" series, which aims to encourage independent reading with a variety of engaging and informative subjects. "The Stinking Story of Rubbish" is a vivid and humorous introduction to the history of human waste and "The Story of Rome" explores the myth and reality behind the greatest ancient empire.
Each title is vividly illustrated and authored and is clearly laid out with speech bubbles to aid the narrative flow.
The Usborne Young Reading programme was developed in conjunction with educational experts at the University of Surrey.
These titles form part of series two, which is aimed at young readers who are growing in confidence.
