Jack went into the airport scanner...but more than one Jack came out. Into the Scanner is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Red Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 106-word fiction story is suitable for struggling teen and adult readers.

Into the Scanner features a short, highly-structured text with limited vocabulary, slightly longer, predictable texts, short and clear sentences, and simple story development. It has clear text, appropriate fonts and obvious spacing.

Into the Scanner 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.
