Freddy Pig by Charlie Higson and Mark Chambers plus Wolfman by Michael Rosen and Chris Mould - Barrington Stoke Reviews

Continuing our reviews of books for challenged readers to celebrate National Dyslexia Awareness week, today we are looking at two of Barrington Stoke's picture books. Barrington Stoke, who specialise in producing books for Challenged Readers, by producing easy to read and dyslexia friendly books, have this year introduced a range of picture books. The picture books can be read by children who have challenges in reading or by dyslexic adults to children.

The picture books, following in Barrington Stoke's tradition are penned by best-selling authors and illustrated by very talented illustrators. The following tow reviews are by education professional Kacy Berry, who has worked with children for the past decade.

Freddy Pig

Charlie Higson and March Chambers

Freddy And the Pig is a funny story about a boy that doesn't want to go to school so send his pig instead. At home the lazy boy gets fat and is sold to a farm whereas the pig goes on to LOVE school! This is a humorous tale, that also can be used as a 'fairytale' type warning to children as what can happen if you don't go to school.

Wolf Man
Michael Rosen and Chris Mould

Wolf Man is a VERY funny story and a great read for the classroom. Unexpected ending that children will love, and can be used for teaching lessons about never judging people by their appearance. It is accompanied by beautiful and hilarious illustrations.
