Usborne True Stories Consultant Review:

My boys have been so fascinated with the stories in the true stories chapter books. Each book is based around specific topics of high adventure stories that follow ghosts, crimes, survival and more themes that really draw reluctant readers in. These books aren’t beginner books, though, and are best for when you want to bring your child beyond reading graphic novels or for those highly interested in true stories that aren’t complete fiction.
