Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 148203722X, Paperback)A real problem for young teenagers with severe reading difficulties, including dyslexia, is the shortage of stories they want to read. (Obviously books aimed at young children are not appropriate.) Based on their considerable research and wide-ranging trials, Anna and Sydney Higgins have written the graded series of books, FUN READ. VAMPIRES, WEREWOLVES, GHOSTS AND UFOs is the 5th book in the series and caters for the often-expressed desire of adolescent males with reading difficulties to have an interesting, factual book. Its Flesch Reading Ease score is 89.9. It is graded as ‘very easy to read’. Based on 8 standard readability formulas, it is appropriate for beginners (= 4th grade/year). Content is most suitable for male students aged 11-16. There are 98 pages and 76 illustrations. VAMPIRES, WEREWOLVES, GHOSTS AND UFOs Despite all the stories, there has never been any satisfactory proof that vampires, werewolves, ghosts or UFO’s exist or have ever really existed. Some reports were made by people who are mad, drunk, on drugs, shortsighted or easily scared. But other reports have come from policemen, pilots and other trained observers. So perhaps some phantoms and unidentified flying objects may exist or have existed. So take care! Perhaps we are not alone! The text is displayed not in complete sentences but in phrases - a system that the writers’ research has shown is the most effective printed layout for easy reading and comprehension. Both Sydney and Anna Higgins have many years of teaching experience. After being a Senior Advisor for English in the UK, Sydney moved to Italy where he became a professor of English. His wife, Anna, has been for over 20 years a university teacher and an examiner for the Cambridge EFL examinations. The other books in the FUN READ series are: 1.
