Dark Man

Dark Man

The Dark Man books are a phenomenon. This is by far the most successful series of books for engaging older, very reluctant readers. It’s been acclaimed around the world and has acquired a well-deserved reputation for succeeding where other series have failed.

There are now 36 books in the series (plus accompanying workbooks), offering progression from a very low starting level (just 200 words a book to begin with). Dark Man offers older readers strong, atmospheric storylines combined with powerful black and white illustrations.

  1. Short, focused texts accompanied by sinister, atmospheric illustrations
  2. The stories hint at horror but have no difficult content
  3. Easy-to-read but ‘grown-up’ font, increasing the ‘cool’ factor
  4. Consistently voted into the top ten ‘What Kids Are Reading’ polls, carried out by Dundee University
  5. Sets 1 and 2 are lower level reads; Sets 3 and 4 are higher level, offering progression
  6. Six plays allow readers with different abilities to work together, taking on appropriate roles
  7. Winner of an Educational Resources Award.
