Learn to read and have fun too!

Updated: Jun 12, 2018

4 reluctant readers packed with gags, comics and general silliness that will actually teach your kid to read.

The always hilarious writer/reading specialist Kevin Bolger (author of Sir Fartsalot Hunts the Booger , Zombiekins) and myself have teamed up to create a 4 book series for reluctant readers that covers everything a kid needs to learn to read. All the vowels and a ton of sight words are covered using jokes, gags and comic silliness.

“New readers. . .will hardly be aware that they are supposed to be learning basic phonics because they will be giggling.” - Kirkus Reviews

Learning to read has never been more fun than it is with Ed and Fred! This hilarious beginner reader text has been carefully crafted to teach more than fifty first sight words—the simplest, most commonly used words young readers must learn to recognize “on sight.” The patterned structure makes the text accessible to beginners, while its humor is guaranteed to draw in even the most reluctant older readers.

"With sight words and sight gags aplenty, this is a good choice for children learning to read." - School Library Journal
