Zero to Hero
Will is football mad, but he’s the shortest boy in the year, and one of the slowest. He knows his skills at passing and ball control could make up for his lack of size and strength, but the team coach is only interested in speed and strength. Will Will ever get a chance to show what he can do? Highly readable, exciting books that take the struggle out of reading, Wired encourages and supports reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers or those with English as an additional language aged 11+, at a manageable length (64 pages) and reading level (8+). Produced in association with reading experts at CatchUp, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.
