One of our Dyslexia Friendly Books of the Year 2013 - Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8
A tale full of wonder from the master story-telling Darren Shan! Hagurosan is sent by his mother to take an offering of cake to the spirits of the shrine. Feeling peckish on his way there, Hagurosan eats the cake! Convinced he will be cursed forever, Hagurosan is terrified, but luckily he has a chance to redeem himself and to bring happiness to others for many years to come. An original story with a traditional feel. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 8+
Mairi Kidd, MD, Barrington Stoke says “We’re incredibly excited to publish Hagurosan. Our readers and their parents beg us for dyslexia-friendly books by the authors they wish they could read and Darren’s name appears again and again. It’s very exciting to be able to answer their wishes in our 15th birthday year. We’re also very moved by Darren’s decision to donate his royalties to the wonderful No Strings International.”
