About Summer Reading Classics Three-Book Collection
Three unforgettable classics—Harriet the Spy, The Phantom Tollbooth, and Where the Red Fern Grows—come together in this collection that’s perfect for reading this summer no matter where you are. Exciting adventures await inside this three-book collection that will take you to the streets of New York City, an extraordinary fantasy world, and back in time to the rural Midwest.
Titles featured include: · Harriet the Spy: Harriet is a spy who writes down everything she knows about everyone. But will she find a way to put her life and friendships back together when her notebook ends up in the wrong hands and the things she’s written come out?
· The Phantom Tollbooth: Escape the summer doldrums and journey with Milo to the Lands Beyond when a mysterious tollbooth appears in his room.
· Where the Red Fern Grows: Billy is ecstatic when he’s finally able to save up enough money for two pups to call his own—Old Dan and Little Ann. It doesn’t matter that times are tough; together they’ll roam the hills of the Ozarks and become the finest hunting team in the valley. Whether you’re looking to brush up on the classics while away from the classroom or to revisit past favorites, this three-book collection makes for ideal summer reading.
