Dark Man: Series


Written by Peter Lancett, this series is designed for teenagers to young adult readers who have a very low reading age. There are 4 sets of 6 books, the first two sets are for a reading age of 5-7 and sets 3 and 4, for those with a reading age of 6-8 years. In addition, there is a set of plays at a similar level. There is a teacher’s guide for the series as a whole and audio discs are currently available for the first two sets of reading books. Care has been taken in using an easy-to-read font and using a cream, rather than a white background. The Dark Man is the hero of the series, who lives in the shadows and has secret powers to fight the forces of evil. Titles such as The Shadow in the Dark and The Face in the Dark Mirror together with moody, black and white illustrations have real appeal for older reluctant readers. Great to see 6 plays in this series too again illustrated throughout with strong black and white drawings. Some of the titles are also available as audio books and ebooks, making this series even more accessible.
