What does this mean?
Made into a movie – Babe – this may get animal-lovers into reading, and is just one of the many awesome books written by Dick King-Smith.
Can you ever trust Dad to look after the house? This outlandish adventure story, with short episodic chapters, and lots of fantasy elements, may work.
Sometimes non-fiction is the way to hook people into reading – and the madcap, get true, adventures of Mark Twain could be the way the go.
Early chapter books which star Roscoe Riley and his misfit group of friends.
First in a very popular fantasy graphic novel series. Graphic novels / comics appeal to many, and may be the perfect tonic for some (non-)readers.
By the creators of Captain Underpants, this madcap graphic novel should appeal to those with a slightly warped sense of humour.
Secret identities, knights, dragons – this is a great series by an awesome New Zealand author.
Fun, madcap, fantasy – and dragons – what more could you want from the first book of a series?
Put together in one volume, this is quite a large book, but divided into smaller bits, it is not so daunting. Action and adventure set in a science-fiction universe.
It is hard to express how much fun this book is – and it is true!
Short, episodic chapters make this an approachable – and zany – read.
First in a series of wacky time-travelling adventures. Jon Scieszka is worth hunting down for other titles, too.
Author Henry Winkler (aka The Fonz from Happy Days) had reading difficulties as a child, and has written a series of books he would love to have had available to his child-self.
Fantasy adventure with pirates, penguins and flying horses. Ludicrous fun, interspersed with black and white illustrations, perfect for breaking up the text.
If you want to know why Jon Scieszka is so funny (and weird) then this biography will help!
