Description of this Book

New series from DK designed to help kids learn how to read and learn to love reading Star Wars[trademark]. What Makes a Monster? is a 'Reading Alone' reader, perfect for children who are proficient readers, developing the habit of reading widely for both pleasure and information. DK Reads proves that good reads build great readers. From the huge wamp ice-creature on Hoth to Jabba's slobbering pet rancor, the galaxy is full of weird and wonderful monsters. You can learn about the fast-moving acklay, a fierce predator from Vendaxa, used to terrorize condemned prisoners in the Arena and read all about dianogas, the garbage squids that have seven muscular tentacles. With interactive aspects such as a diary entry from a day in the life of a Genosian picador, a survival guide to protecting a Jedi from a land beast, infographics, and more. Star Wars[trademark] What Makes a Monster? is part of the new DK Reads series, a three-level reading scheme that helps children become confident readers, featuring engaging and illustrated topics. DK Reads is created in consultation with literacy experts and adheres to leveled reading scheme guidelines so the grammar, vocabulary, and content are spot on for each stage.
