Collins Big Cat Phonics for Letters and Sounds features exciting fiction and non-fiction decodable readers to enthuse and inspire children. The 7+ books are designed for children aged 7+ who need more practice to acquire phonics skills. They have age-appropriate content, more mature images, and are fully aligned to Letters and Sounds Phases 3–5.

Hanako's family visit a city farm where, unbeknownst to them, a hen lays an egg in Hanako’s bag. The egg hatches – and the chick is adored by Hanako, her dad and the cat, Tora. But her mum thinks poor Cheep is a messy waste of space! After a few months of trial and tribulations, Cheep grows into a hen and lays an egg in the same bag she started life in. Hanako uses it to cook a Japanese egg dish … and Mum finally starts to accept the hen into the family!
