Series description

Blue Bananas are exciting short stories for beginner readers that bridge the gap between picture books and text-based books. Clear type, speech bubbles, and engaging illustrations on every page help young readers make the transition from books emphasizing pictures to books emphasizing text. A perfect way to share story-telling and build reading skills.
- full-color illustrations on every page provide a recognizable format for children
- speech bubbles allow less experienced readers to enjoy reading what the characters say as the story is read aloud to them
- short blocks of text allow more advanced readers to read along
- Guided Reading level indicated for each book
- Teacher's Guide reinforces and enhances skills learned in the core reading program

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
