Kim likes pop. Sam likes rock. Sam talks A LOT! Will Sam ever stop? Not Pop Not Rock is a low level phonics reading book. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 149-word fiction story features a fully decodable text, suitable for struggling teen and adult readers.

Not Pop Not Rock uses a carefully limited set of letters and sounds to make up all the words. (For UK schools this relates to Phase 2 of Letters and Sounds, the UK Government's synthetic phonics reading programme.)

Not Pop Not Rock is part of Ransom's Neutron Stars, a structured reading programme for teens and adults learning the basics of reading. The series offer progression through ten levels of reading, four phonics and six coloured book bands.
