King Mercurio wanted to be a great king, like his father - but he had no idea where to start. Until one day an architect visited him. He decides to build a great palace, much bigger than King Constantin’s palace, with a dome, a tower and even a flagpole on top. The architect insists with each new addition that the palace is no longer safe, but will the king ever listen?
Bug Club Shared Reading titles are highly engaging and beautifully illustrated stories, designed to be read out loud. The programme exposes children to rich, curriculum-linked vocabulary, helping to build an understanding across school subjects and cultivate a love for reading.
‘These books are a great start to addressing the wider curriculum and the vocabulary issues that schools are identifying.’ - Assistant Head, Primary Academy
