Jenny’s Choice

Jenny’s Choice is the eagerly-awaited fourth title in the brilliant Supermarket Stories series, written by Margaret Adams and illustrated by Ian Bobb.

It seemed to Jenny that she had spent her whole life having to choose. But none of this helped with the choice that Jenny had to make now.

– Each book in the series focuses on a different supermarket worker, demonstrating that everyone has a story to tell

– Characters are well-developed and relationships explored, creating intrigue and surprise

– Each story offers plenty of material for stimulating discussion

– Focuses on key phonic sounds

– Graphically illustrated throughout

“This is fantastic – the best yet. Once I started, I just had to finish it.”
Maggie Harnew, Skills Workshop

“For me the beauty of Margaret’s stories is that men who believe they can’t read, find themselves finishing a chapter before realising it – and then of course wanting to continue to the end of the story. I keep coming back to the Asco stories – the words are as vivid as the pictures. Here’s another deceptively simple tale with an unravelling twist! There are so many human issues to discuss – all strikingly portrayed by the characters in the Supermarket.”
John Hawker, Kenward Trust

“I liked the story. The story finished with a cliff-hanger so now I want to know what will happen next!
Sam Atkinson

“This was a good story and I’m glad we read all of it. We were going to read half in the library and then finish it at home but I wanted to finish it and find out what was going to happen. I would like to read the other stories in this series.”
Sue Taylor

“This story reminded me of the stories I read in my magazine. I enjoyed reading it together with the rest of the group because we stopped at the end of each chapter and talked about what had happened and tried to guess what was going to happen next.”
Asma Hussain
