"Oxford Reds" is our first major super series for newly confident readers. Each book is on a real-life subject, with a simple lively text and richly coloured, realistic illustrations. Many are written by well-known children's writers. Each one is written by an author who communicates enthusiasm, passion and understanding for the subject. Approved by educational experts, "Oxford Reds" contain clear type, simple sentence structures, information boxes, contents pages, alphabetical glossaries, and parents' and teacher's notes. These books will appeal particularly to the beginner reader who prefers factual information to a story. The series is planned to launch with 12 titles in 2000 followed by 8 per year. Other subjects include: "Sharks"; "Snakes"; "Frogs and Toads"; "Dogs"; "Rockets"; "Wolves"; "Dinosaurs"; and "Whales". About the author: Rose Impey was born and grew up in Northwich, Cheshire. She now lives in Leicester, where she taught for a few years in a Junior School, and has two grown-up daughters. Rose has written over sixty books, from first picture books through to early teen novels. She is probably best known for her very popular "Animal Crackers" series.

Review:

"The minute I opened [Wild Reads], my kids, aged 8 and 5, devoured them They are filled with colorful, very detailed drawings to interest the non-readers, and have large print for young readers. The books don't talk down to the kids, however. There are plenty of big words to learn, but each book comes with a handy glossary in the back These books help make nonfiction more accessible to children and show that nonfiction can be just as fun and interesting as fiction." --Wired Magazine, GeekDad"Children will go 'wild' with interest in this Oxford series of very readable and exciting books about wildlife. Wonderfully illustrated with cheerfully engaging colorful drawings of the topic animals, the narratives will pique the interest of the reader These are wonderfully crafted books that will intrigue children from three to eight along with their accompanying adults." --San Francisco Book Review
