TreeTops True Stories are exciting, motivating non-fiction books which will broaden your pupils' reading experience. They are part of a structured reading programme for juniors. This is an unusual but inspiring story of the rise of an Afro-Brazilian boy through the slums of Rio de Janeiro to become, for many Brazilians, the King of the Carnival. 'Cartola' (meaning top hat) never becomes rich or leisured. He has a hard life on the whole, but the music of the Samba beat fills him with joy and inspires him to take up the guitar and become a legend to his countrymen. Books contain inside cover notes to support children in their reading. Help with childrens reading development also available at www.oxfordowl.co.uk. This book is also available as part of a mixed pack of 6 different books or a class pack of 36 books of the same Oxford Reading Tree level.
