The Paperbag Prince by Colin Thompson

Our first literacy unit for Spring Term is a beautifully written and illustrated story called The Paperbag Prince.


Each page has a very detailed border, filled with tiny pictures of something linking to the story – like all different types of houses and shops. So far we have talked about the different houses and written a description to accompany them, plus we created character profiles of the Paperbag Prince himself, sharing ideas of what his name could be, where he might live and what we think he used to do for a job.
