Crime : v. 8 Paperback
by David Orme
Part of the Trailblazers series
Crime looks at crime through the ages, exploring topics such as pirates, bodysnatchers, gangs and gangsters (who are the Mafia?).
The non-fiction section also looks at modern crimes, such as people smuggling and internet crime.
You can also find out about different kinds of punishments through the ages - including the silliest punishment ever.
Find out also how crimes are solved. The true-life fiction story 'Burke and Hare' tells of two real people in history who sold dead bodies for money.
Urgh! Crime is part of the Trailblazers series, published by Ransom Publishing.
It is ideal for older children and young adults with a reading age of 5 - 8.
The books are suitable for general reading or as part of a more structured reading programme.
Each book is on a strong, popular topic, with a colourful, attractive layout, combining fact and fiction.
Each book has a non fiction and a fiction section. The fiction story appears in two formats - one with simple texts for poor readers; the facing pages contain an illustrated "speech bubble" version of the same story, for those who are just starting to learn to read. These two levels of entry give access points for children and young adults with different reading ages.
The vocabulary of each book is carefully limited, with simple sentences to reinforce reading skills, which make the books suitable for even the poorest readers.
