Fun, engaging, easy-to-read stories for beginning adult readers

PageTurners are short, easy-to-read stories for adults learning to read.

Published by PRACE (Preston Reservoir Adult Community Education), the books are designed by experienced teachers to suit the needs of adults learning to read. Aimed to show beginners that reading can also be fun, the books are sometimes funny, sometimes irreverent, and always on topics of interest to adults.
