Dark Reads II is a series of eight novels, written specifically to interest teenagers with a very low reading ability. With a word count of no more than 600, these bite-sized books are perfect for those normally daunted by the prospect of reading. They are both stimulating in content and encouraging in that they allow readers to finish them in good time, rather than getting bogged down.
 
This set of Dark Reads presents a relatable and modern ‘way in’ to Shakespeare. Each title takes inspiration from a different play, providing a subtle familiarity with each of their concepts.

Dyslexia-friendly font and line spacing
Fantastic graphic novel style full-page illustrations
