Fear by David Orme


Fear by David Orme

What are you frightened of? Spiders? Snakes? Or just ghosts and monsters? How about the skull that lay in its grave - and screamed. Scary enough for you? Can fear ever be a good thing? Which creatures do you never want to meet? It's all in here. Get the facts. Then read 'Just My Imagination?' - poems about dreams that are real and horror you cannot describe. Fear is part of the Trailblazers series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist in books for struggling and reluctant readers. Each book in the series has a non fiction and a fiction section. The fiction story is told in two formats - one with simple text, the other with 'speech bubble' illustrations. These two levels of entry offer the complete story at different reading levels, and the vocabulary of each book is carefully limited, with simple sentences to reinforce reading skills. Each book is on a strong, popular topic, with a colourful, attractive layout, combining fact and fiction. Fear is ideal for children aged 8 - 14 with a reading age of 6 - 7.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

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.
