When Kevin and his friend decide to go fishing up at the old mine, they run into trouble. Whose are those cries they hear? And can the girl with the lamp be real? Collins Soundbites is a revolutionary series of readers for students who are struggling to achieve NC level 4 at Key Stage 3. A Trick of the Light has a Reading Age of 6-7, with 30 words per page. Six readers are published in a pack at each stage or level of ability. Soundbites is the first series of readers for students with poor literacy that delivers the curriculum. Also available are Mixed Packs that contain six different readers at each of the three stages (stage 1: reading age 6-7; stage 2: age 7-8; stage 3: age 8-9). Two thirds of each book is 'narrative' style text. One third of each book covers information, using a variety of text types such as autobiographies, biographies, journals, diaries, letters (personal and formal), travel writing, leaflets, reports, reviews, adverts, newspaper/magazine articles, tables. Specialised, difficult or technical vocabulary explained on the page, plus a one-page glossary at the end. The topics covered address the KS3 curriculum in different areas. Photocopiable teaching resources, containing a range of literacy-boosting activities, are available in the Soundbites Bumper Pack.

'sure to be a welcome addition to any school's library of materials to support the development of literacy in weaker readers... [the] books blend fiction and non-fiction interestingly and attractively... should appeal to both girls and boys.'TES 'Good mixture of reading narrative, illustrations, explanations and opportunity for extension activities.'
