The Finest Glasses in the WorldClass 1b 4

Helena Bross, illustrated by Christel Rönns

“Today we’re going to swap places,” says the teacher.
Everybody’s curious and excited.
But from her new place right at the back of the classroom, Lova can’t see what’s on the board. The whole thing is just covered with blurred writing. It turns out she needs glasses.
Lova wonders what she’s going to look like in glasses. And she’s going to play Lucia on December 13th … Lucia can’t wear glasses, can she? And what if Melker doesn’t like girls who wear glasses!

The Finest Glasses in the World is a warm, familiar tale with a high recognition factor – this is what it’s like to be in Year 1 and to find out that you need glasses.

Perfect for all those boys and girls who’ve just learned to read.

Christel Rönn’s illustrations are amusing and colourful, with lots of movement in her cute but edgy pictures. Helena Bross is a writer, translator and primary school teacher, well acquainted with life at school for the youngest pupils; she has produced a considerable number of easy-to-read books for first time readers
