All the essentials of spelling covered thoroughly in a light-hearted and accessible style. The books act as a genuinely useful tool for children who want or need to improve their English and grasp areas that they have perhaps not understood at school or missed out on. Each page covers a key point, shows lots of examples to demonstrate correct usage, and has a handy summary at the bottom of the page. Comic-strip style illustrations and the group of characters that make up the Odd Mob make learning fun and easy, with puns, jokes and cartoons.
