"Readers in this new series of graded reading materials for language learners come at four levels, level 1 - 400 headwords, level 2 - 750 headwords, level 3 - 1 000 headwords, level 4 - 1 250 headwords. The series editor and the author of a number of the readers in the series is an experienced teacher and author of ELT materials, including graded readers for various publishers. His expertise is clearly visible in the choice of texts, the topics and the variety. Some of the stories are narratives; some come in the form of a diary or dialogues. The illustration and visual materials include pictures in various styles, maps, photographs and diagrams. The stories are very well written and a pleasure to read - a teenager kidnapped by aliens, secrets of the London Underground discovered by a night cleaner, a mystery story, the relationship between a student and a teacher, or a modern house haunted by a tidy ghost. The stories are accompanied with resource pages, activity pages and a glossary explaining some of the more difficult words used in the text. At the moment there are four titles available at each level. Let us hope there are more to come." Hanna Kryszewska for Humanising Language Teaching, December 2014
