Synopsis

The Dark Music by Peter Lancett

The Dark Music is part of an award-winning fiction series for young adults with a reading age as low as 5-7. Each book features Dark Man, a shadowy, brooding loner who has been recruited to play a part in a secret, cataclysmic struggle between good and evil. In the Dark Music, a piano is playing. The music is fast and chilling, and it never stops. It's driving Angela mad. The music is coming from a tall, rotten bridling in the bad part of the city. Dark Man is drawn towards the music. As he climbs the stairs he sees children shuffling towards the music, their eyes staring. Can Dark Man defeat the terrible dark that lives inside the piano? Following on from the shorter stories of the first twelve titles, the new books offer the perfect 'next step up' with stories of around 1000 words. Written at much the same level of difficulty, the stories entice readers by delving that bit deeper into the Dark Man mythology. The simple, carefully written texts focus on the 200 key high frequency words, and to assist the reader they are left justified throughout and printed in a clear, legible font on off-white paper (ideal for dyslexic readers).
