*mumbles* Zephaniah actually *mumbles*

In all seriousness, would it help to add the age range (I think Collins Big Cats are in Bands?)?

Could I do In The Rue Bel Tesoro and/or Sophie's Rules, please?

Fwiw, I find those Collins Big Cat bands thoroughly confusing!! I guess if you use them every day, it all falls neatly into place but for an occasional reader they don't mean very much. I love the books though!

I just think of the badns as sequential - i.e. band 9 must be lower than band 16. Once you know your child can read (or likes to read) a certain band then you can just aim for around that number.

I didn't know Fighting Fantasy was still going. Wow! That deserves a separate thread. Let me think of something to say.
