Book Band: White (Ideal for ages 6+)

A delightfully funny story, ideal for children practising reading at home or in school.

It’s time for Fizzy to go to bed, but next door, Mrs Crumbleboom and her band are having a party. Fizzy is desperate to join in the fun. Will Mum let her stay up just a little bit longer? This family comedy from Ireland's Children's Laureate Sarah Crossan, starring the characters from Fizzy and Bandit, is perfect for Key Stage 1 (KS1) children who are learning to read by themselves. It features illustrations from Nicola Colton, creator of the Jasper and Scruff books, and a feisty heroine children will love.

Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. The series is ideal for both home and school, with gorgeous colour illustrations, tips for parents, and fun activity ideas. Online guided reading and teaching notes, written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), are available at

PRAISE FOR BLOOMSBURY YOUNG READERS Written by favourite authors, these are well worth collecting and are just the thing for children ready for reading. - Andrea Reece, Lovereading4kids

PRAISE FOR BLOOMSBURY YOUNG READERS My six-year-old, THE BOSS has just found her reading rhythm... THE BOSS got her hands on Bloomsbury Young Readers and suddenly, her reading took off. These are proper stories that are a manageable step up from picture books, while keeping all the colour and fun. - Leisa Stewart-Sharpe, My Book Corner

PRAISE FOR FIZZY AND BANDIT Former Laureate na nÓg Sarah Crossan's first book for early readers is the sweet, funny tale of a girl called Fizzy Pop who longs for a dog of her own. [...] It is written with a light touch, and Nicola Colton's exuberant illustrations make this tale truly 'fizz'. - Chosen as one of the best books to enjoy over the summer break, The Irish Independent

Fizzy is certainly an apt name for the protagonist herein for she simply fizzes with energy even or perhaps especially at bedtime, which is when Mrs Crumbleboom is having her party…A good many young readers will recognise the bedtime delaying of persuasive Fizzy who provides not only a great rationale for being allowed to attend but continues to sway the situation her way throughout the story. - Jill R Bennett, Red Reading Hub

The pages are packed with busy and colourful illustrations, creating lots of visuals for discussion. The story is divided into chapters and the writing is clear and imaginatively written with lots of description and creative vocabulary. - Love Reading 4 Schools
