Burkley and the Beasts : The Sea Serpent (Dyslexiassist Enabled)
Burkley Brooks doesn't mind being a bit different. She named her pet boa constrictor Stella, even though it's a boy. She won't eat yellow food, but must have something red on her plate. And she's fine with her nickname - Quirky Burkley. However, none of it's as weird as the strange things she's been seeing lately...such as snake tongues stealing bananas and reaching at her from inside the kitchen sink! Thankfully, her Grandma Brooks is there to explain these visions. Burkley has been chosen as the next Brooks to inherit the beautiful Heartstone, the key to a mystical Portal. Through the Portal lies a mysterious place called Mermaid's Lagoon, where Burkley's Grandpa Brooks and Uncle Charlie disappeared years ago. The first step to finding and rescuing them is a battle with a huge, fierce Sea Serpent! With a magical trident in her hands and her best friends at her side, will Burkley save the day? Adventure, magic and the power of family! Early readers of ages 7-10 will love jumping into this book and going through the mystical Portal with Quirky Burkley and her brave friends. - - - - - About "DyslexiAssist(TM)" Part of our mission at Knowonder! Publishing is to make literacy more effective. In order to fulfill that mission for children suffering from dyslexia we are proud to announce our new DyslexiAssist(TM) initiative: to publish each of our books in a special font designed to make reading easier for dyslexics. You can learn more about it on our website. When reading with this new font, independent research shows that 84% of dyslexics read faster, 77% read with fewer mistakes, and 76% recommend the font to others who suffer from dyslexia. Reading stories is a highly enjoyable form of entertainment and learning for many people but people with dyslexia have been unable to find joy from books. We hope this new initiative can now bring the same love and joy of reading to your home!
