AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Supa Doopers is a collection of early chapter books of adventure, humour, nonsense, fantasy and fun. The series is suitable for guided and independent reading for middle primary students (8-11 year olds). '

'For many young readers, the leap from picture books to novels can seem enormous. Supa Doopers is designed for those children "in between," to help them make a successful transition from picture book to novel. Supa Doopers are favourites with readers who appreciate the support of line drawings to help them enjoy the story. They are also popular with older, reluctant readers.'
