The cover of 'Design a Pram'

Poor Mr Oakway has to think of something to keep his whole class busy while he writes reports.

'Design a pram!'

Hetty and Oliver, the bossiest children in the class, take over straight away, but they have very different ideas about the perfect pram.

A rocket-propelled pram

So which design is the best? It's up to Mr Oakway to decide ...

"A delightful introduction to the pleasures of reading."
