From Pictures to Words - a guide to choosing books for beginner readers: Rhyme


Pandora’s Lunch Box by Lorraine Francis
Published by Poolbeg Press, 2002
ISBN 1-84223-062-X

Pandora’s school lunches will never be the same again after she is given a magic lunch box by her Aunt Narcissa. But just as Mum predicts, Narcissa’s brilliant schemes go a bit haywire sometimes. In fact they end up in a muddle almost all the time.

Only the Wizard Welkin can reverse the spell in exchange for Pandora’s exploding orange candy crystals.

Pandora’s Lunch Box by Lorraine Francis

Having learnt her lesson, even full roast chicken dinners with scrumptious deserts, instead of soggy ham sandwiches, aren’t enough to tempt Pandora to use another of her Aunt’s spells, though it might mean no homework.

Pandora’s Lunch Box is a Poolbeg Goldcrest reader. Other books in this series for beginner readers by Lorraine Francis include Lulu’s Tutu, Save Our Sweetshop and The Origami Bird.
