Pullu taħt is-Sodda

The first book in the PULLU series of books intended for readers in the 5/6 age bracket, published by Klabb Kotba Maltin.

The characteristic of the books is that all the words in each do not have the consonant "għ", which is silent in Maltese and a cause of difficulty for beginning readers.

This first book was published in 2000.

In it we find the story of Pullu, a boy who looked like a teddy bear and who lived under the ground. He becomes friends with Toni and Sara. He goes into Toni's bedroom through a hole under the bed. But one day, Pullu does not turn up...
