Herman and the Magical Bus to LOSTVILLE (The Villes)

£16.00

Product description

This set is in very good condition, almost new as the cellophane is still intact. The case is therefore beautifully crisp as well as the ten book contained inside it.

Herman and the Magical Bus to...The Villes' series is a charming set of children's books that promote problem solving skills. Written by TV Personality,Martin Roberts. The Villes are aimed at 6-10 year olds and bridge the gap between picture led story books and early chapter books. The rather eccentric central character, Herman takes himself each day to the bus stop ready for an adventure, and each day the big red, magical bus arrives to take him to one of The Villes.

Here he finds the residents in quite a troubling situation... In Tiredsville, all the locals are always tired but why? In Fullsville, they are always full up, but what is causing this? In Hotsville, the temperature is tropical all day long, but why is this? With help from a variety of side kicks and larger than life characters, Herman manages to solve the mystery as to WHY things aren't as they should be. Of course, the reason behind the problem is something whimsical and amusing and Herman gently manages to solve the issue and put everything right - making a few friends as he does so.

The Bath Oxfam Books and Music shop has been open since 2001. We stock a wide selection of books, vinyl, cds and dvds but always welcome donations to keep our shelves full and interesting. Following our shop refit in 2009 we have a modern, bright and spacious interior where customers are welcome to browse at their leisure. We do not specialise in any one area but often seem to do particularly well with History books and Vinyl. Thanks to the wonderful donations we receive on a daily basis through the door, and from our local Book Banks, we offer our customers a fantastic range of stock both in the shop and online. Please come and see for yourselves!
