Where is the dyslexia-friendly books section?

What makes your books dyslexia-friendly?

Our books use a specially designed font that promotes character recognition and we use a tinted paper that is easier on the eyes. You can find out more detail about why our books are dyslexia and reluctant reader friendly here.

Do you publish for adults with dyslexia?

We offer a growing selection of dyslexia-friendly classics and our graphic novel Alpha is also available in an edition aimed at adult readers.

Otherwise, our books are primarily aimed at children and young people although we believe that many of our teen and YA titles are also great reads for grown-ups. You might enjoy The Truth of Things by Anthony McGowan, Moose Baby by Meg Rosoff, Mind the Gap by Phil Earle or Unboxed by Non Pratt. Or try browsing our teen books section.
