Our brand new batch of Chapter Readers have been a hit with first-time Maverick reviewer, Reading with 2 Boys. Thanks to Aanchal and her little ones for taking a look at these readers, so glad they’ve been thoroughly enjoyed.
The Haunted Baking Club, Written by Alison Donald, Illustrated by Kaley McCabe – This is a story of two friends Sam and Sarah who are ghost hunters and goes to a haunted school. They searched for ghosts everywhere other than the kitchen. Luckily through a baking club, they get access to the kitchen and one fine day they confirm that there is definitely a ghost in the kitchen who loves to bake. But who is it? Why is it here? Is it trying to send out a message?
Narration is funny and exciting with beautiful pictures on-page. A ghost story, who wouldn’t like it 🙂
Invisible Ivan, Written by Katie Dale, Illustrated by Max Rambaldi – This is a story of Ivan who loves spending time with his great aunty Polly. One day they were playing a game of invisible ink writing when accidentally the ink spills on Ivan and he becomes invisible.

Humorous narration & illustrations, a story about a boy who becomes invisible. Kids will definitely want to do this trick at home too 🙂 We made our own invisible ink after reading the book.

Beautiful narration & illustrations subtly send the message of being YOU.
