LoveReading View on Wolfman

A Dyslexia Friendly Picture Book for Parent and Child   Best-selling Michael Rosen teams up with the brilliant illustrator Chris Mould in this scary story with a witty twist. Wolf Man is on the loose. He is ripping up paving stones and biting huge chunks out of trees. He is terrorising everyone – even the chief of police. Wolf Man goes right up to the Police Chief’s front door. What will happen when he opens it?

Publisher Barrington Stoke was inspired to create the Picture Squirrel Books titles after meeting a man with dyslexia at a book event.  “We were approached by a gentleman who told us that it broke his heart that he couldn’t read to his child because of his dyslexia,” M.D. Mairi Kidd told The Bookseller. “So we talked to Michael Morpurgo, who we were already working with on low text books [textbooks that use a limited number of words]."  The layout of picture books can be difficult for adults with dyslexia as the language and typeface are often very varied, the text can be cut into small chunks or is sometimes spun around a picture, which can make a book tricky if you don’t have good reading skills. Barrington Stoke worked with the authors and illustrators to ensure that the books are suitable for dyslexic readers and thereby helping more families grow a love of reading.

On the Picture Squirrels...Michael Morpurgo says: “I was immediately taken with the idea of the Picture Squirrel books, a picture book list that dyslexic parents and less confident readers can read with their
children too.”

Wolfman Synopsis

A rollicking romp filled with thrills, chills and laughter. A stunning picture book for the under fives with an added bonus – dyslexic parents can read them too.

Wolfman has escaped! He is raging and rampaging around town, chewing up paving slabs and biting trees and generally being very terrifying indeed! Whatever can Wolfman want and who will be brave enough to ask...?

Part of Barrington Stoke's picture book range for all the family, with easy-read font.

Sharing stories is one of the best things families can do for their children and the Picture Squirrel books published by Barrington Stoke all contain a cluster of dyslexia-friendly features to help and support parents and carers with dyslexia so that they too can enjoy great books with children in their care.
