Interest Age 12-15

Word Count 500-600

 

Dark Reads are very short novels for struggling readers who have very low reading ages, but want stories that will excite and even scare them. Each book in this set of eight is based on a classic tale or horror story from the masters of their craft - including a modern take on Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and a Zombie attack on a cruise ship!

 

Each title has the look and feel of a real book. They also include information about the author and illustrator, plus fantastic colour illustrations. The covers are designed to ensure your students feel they are reading an exciting teenage novel and not a typical book for struggling readers.
