"The Dark Garden" is part of an award-winning fiction series for young adults with a reading age as low as 5-7. Each book features Dark Man, a shadowy, brooding loner who has been recruited to play a part in a secret, cataclysmic struggle between good and evil.In "The Dark Garden", the Dark Man has been captured by the Shadow Masters. He hangs from a tree in a mysterious garden, his power drained. There is nothing he can do to break free. But in the moonlight, something moves. It is Claire. She has the power to turn moonlight into sunshine and bring the garden to life. But are her powers strong enough to defeat the evil of the shadow masters? Following on from the shorter stories of the first twelve titles, the new books offer the perfect 'next step up' with stories of around 1000 words. Written at much the same level of difficulty, the stories entice readers by delving that bit deeper into the Dark Man mythology.The simple, carefully written texts focus on the 200 key high frequency words, and to assist the reader they are left justified throughout and printed in a clear, legible font on off-white paper (ideal for dyslexic readers).
