Ben can cook good jerk chicken. But when he falls off the ladder, who will run his chicken van? Ben's Jerk Chicken Van is a low level phonics reading book. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 481-word fiction story features a fully decodable text, suitable for struggling teen and adult readers.

Ben's Jerk Chicken Van uses a carefully limited set of letters and sounds to make up all the words. (For UK schools this relates to Phase 3 of Letters and Sounds, the UK Government's synthetic phonics reading programme.)

Ben's Jerk Chicken Van is part of Ransom's Neutron Stars, a structured reading programme for teens and adults learning the basics of reading. The series offers progression through ten levels of reading, four phonics and six coloured book bands.
