It has been a long dark year. We have fought the Zeds to secure this world for our children. We are Platform 7. Platform 7 is a low level phonics reading book. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this fiction story features a fully decodable text, suitable for struggling teen and adult readers.

Platform 7 uses a carefully limited set of letters and sounds to make up all the words. (For UK schools this relates to Phase 4 of Letters and Sounds, the UK Government's synthetic phonics reading programme.)

Platform 7 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.
