Synopsis

Hot News! by John Townsend

Stimulating and accessible, the titles in the LIVEWIRE series have been produced in association with The Basic Skills Agency to ensure a non-patronising approach towards the requirements of readers with special needs. They provide teenagers/adult interest level fiction and non-fiction for those with reading ages below 10, or adult students learning English as a second language. Each book is graded at one of the following reading ages: 6-7, 7-8, 8-9 or 9-10. All LIVEWIRE books are written by qualified Special Needs teachers, and are expertly assessed and subtly colour-coded for the appropriate reading age. Hot News has articles on strange news stories from around the world, such as Danka, the world's smallest dog, a man who has surgery to have Spock ears and a lion who gets stuck in a public toilet in Africa.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
