These are books I have written for kids who like to read exciting stories but are finding reading a bit of a challenge (including reading disabilities such as dyslexia). They are ideal learning tools if you want to improve your comprehension and have some fun while you're at it. All books come with an audio CD containing the story being read aloud for extra clarification. Suitable for ages 7 - 12 years. (13 & 14 might be suitable too - check with your teacher first.)
