About the SeriesThe Reading Raven series is designed to encourage beginning readers by providing fun and exciting stories at each ability level, from their first efforts at reading alone to more advanced chapter books Each Reading Raven book includes reading riddles, puzzles to solve using information in the story. This is a fun way to check how well children understand what they read. The first level features short texts with lots of pictures that provide clues to the story's meaning. These books are written in extra-large print. When children are ready for longer stories, the second level of Reading Raven offers short chapter books, also in large print with illustrations that help readers follow the text. The third level is for readers who are becoming proficient, with longer chapters and increasingly complex stories, but still with accompanying pictures and highly readable print.
The AuthorAnja Kiel, born in 1973, wanted to become a painter or dancer as a child. Only after her master's degree in art history, philosophy and applied cultural sciences did she discover her enthusiasm for writing. After the birth of her two children, she finally turned her hobby into a career and became an author. The beauty of her job is that with every book she can immerse herself into a new world. To relax, she does yoga or visits museums. The author lives her dream of happiness today: she can practice her profession freely and spend a lot of time with her family.
The IllustratorElke Broska, born 1980, studied graphic and communication design at the universities of applied sciences in Bielefeld and Mainz with a focus on illustration and book design. Since 2007 she works as a freelance illustrator for various publishers. She lives and works in Wiesbaden. Her hobbies include music, books, art and design, traveling, tai chi, pug dog and guinea pig. On her work for children, she says, "Children can do so much more than adults want them to believe, and a good book encourages them to go their own way no matter how small they supposedly are."
