Written by elementary reading specialist Kevin Bolger, these short, wacky comics are designed to teach beginning readers the five short vowel sounds and will make anyone a fan of phonics. Zany, graphic illustrations from award-winning artist Ben Hodson and carefully controlled text make Gran on a Fan perfect for both beginners just learning to decode and for older or reluctant readers who need a refresher in foundational phonics rules.

Readers who are fans of Gran on a Fan can also brush up on their long vowel sounds with the companion book, Lazy Bear, Crazy Bear.
