Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. This is a brand new series from Barrington Stoke with huge appeal to fans of manga, martial arts and magic and particularly suitable for reluctant or struggling readers of 9 or 10+ as the books are real page-turners and best of all, they are short – less than 100 pages. There will be five titles in the series and these will be published bi-monthly during the course of 2010.
