About this series:

Highlights is a series of original works of fiction aimed at students aged 10-15 years who are reading below level.

The stories are specifically written for this audience, with each author writing three stories to create a mini-series, thus encouraging the reader to want to read more. Each mini-series is in the same genre. Highlights covers different genres, helping readers to learn the language associated with the genre.

Each book is supported by full colour ‘manga style’ illustrations to reinforce and supplement the text. Every right hand page is a full colour illustration to accompany the text and assist comprehension. The stories are dynamic and use a variety of dramatic devices, including changes of perspective and variations of cell size and shape.

Available in audio CD to support each short novel from the Highlights set 1 are Adventure Trilogy, Mystery Trilogy and Fantasy Trilogy.
