Pia the Pony, Fred the Flamingo and Ali the Chimpanzee are friends, competing against each other at an Olympiad. Pia is the fastest runner, Fred is the best swimmer and Ali can throw farther than either of them. But Pia is annoyed – she was so certain she would win. That’s when Fred and Ali have an idea: water polo. Now everyone can do what they’re best at!

About the Series

Many children start showing an interest in exploring letters and reading as early as kindergarten. That’s exactly what we’ve developed our pre-reading level for. It allows children 5 years and over to make first reading experiences together with their parents. Nouns are replaced with images, making it easy to involve children in the reading process.
