The House of Shadows by Karen Dolby

Part of the Usborne Young Reading Programme, this spooky story is for children growing in reading confidence and ability. Kit and Ned's new home looks perfectly normal from the outside, but inside swirling mists reveal glimpses of its shadowy past. Can the children uncover the house's chilling secret in time?

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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!

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
