Teachers tell us they love using our 150 Teacher Editions (Foundation to Year 3) to support our 150 guided readers (Levels 1–30). Each Teacher Edition has page-by-page support – comprehension questions from literal to visual and higher-level comprehension from connection to synthesis – all linked to Australian and state curriculums. Request a free pre-reader (phonics) and Teacher Edition – this unique pre-reading series will be ready for back-to-school 2021.

PAIRED FICTION for LEVELS 23–30
Paired fiction – two books with the SAME STORYLINE written from DIFFERENT CHARACTER PERSPECTIVES.
Some are set in DIFFERENT TIME PERIODS and LOCATIONS.
The Preposterous Problem Parrot (Level 23)
A pet shop owner is having a closing-down sale. All her pets have been sold, except for one parrot (which has learned how to say naughty rhymes). No matter how hard she tries, the pet shop owner cannot find a good home for her problem parrot – until, one day, there is a knock at the door.
Blackspit: The Buckaneer's Birthday (Level 24)
It's Captain Blackspit's birthday, and his crew are worried. The grumpy buccaneer didn't like any of the birthday presents they got him last year – and, although they've been to almost every shop in a seaside village, they can't seem to find the perfect pirate's present. Will the last shop have anything?
In Literacy Tower Paired Fiction, there are two sides to every story ... so why not explore both?
Through paired fiction titles, The Literacy Tower offers young readers the opportunity to delve deeper into a single story – to explore different character personalities, perspectives and motivations. Paired fiction also helps grow students’ understanding of how and why everyone in a story makes a contribution to its eventual outcome.
