The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 9+ Reading Age 6.5+. A fun adventure about facing your fears with high quality graphic novel-style illustrations depicting the action throughout and gripping narrative with stacks of fun facts. Particularly suitable for reluctant readers who prefer non-fiction/fact books. FYI, the series, also entices them into reading fiction. . It really is an excellent title for the reluctant, struggling or dyslexic reader of 9+ but particularly for those whose reading age is nearer 8+.

A Dyslexia Friendly title.
