Introducing the new Battle Cries series of books
Sounds-Write is pleased to announce the publication of its new series Battle Cries, which features the heroine Amy Blade, 'all action, all heart, already two steps in front of you'!
The series is designed to help struggling, older readers (from about eleven years and onwards). Each book focuses on a particular sound and is deliberately contrived to contain multiple spellings of the sound. The first book, Caves of Danger, starts with the sound /ae/.
The books are meant to be challenging and work on a number of different levels simultaneously: adventure series, a brief history of writing systems, and as allegory.
We hope you like them.
