Feedback about our Books

If you have used our books with children we would love to have any feedback you have (positive or negative!).  Particularly about our two new products – The Dandelion Launchers (aimed at the earliest readers) and Talisman (aimed at older readers).
We have been expanding our range quite quickly over the last year and we would love to know how you are findng them in actual use!

Wendy has been trialing Talisman with a couple of children in our local community. They have gone down a storm. My older son absolutely loved them. He wants to know if we can do another ten books about their return home!

I am just about to embark on the Launchers with my youngest son who is itching to start…


  1. HI,
    PhonicBooks are at the SEN exhibition in London today and tomorrow. We get to chat to lots of teachers about what they would like us to publish next. We would like to hear from teachers using our books what they think we should create next. So write to us and tell us on the blog.

  2. We have bought and started using both Dandelion Readers and Dandelion Launchers. The children and parents love the books, as do we. We (teachers) particularly like the rich vein of material for discussion of the text in detail and for inference. I am sure that we are not the only school that struggles to help our parents understand that decoding the text is only one part of reading! So many pages of the Dandelion texts allow us to make it crystal clear to parents what we mean by inference, exploration of what the characters might be thinking etc. Thank you.

  3. Hello, this is a very late comment on this post! My daughter (age 5) has just started using the Dandelion (I assume the launcher series) books at school and through that I found your website and blog (which I’ve been steadily working my way through this morning).

    I just wanted to say that I am finding the Dandelion books fantastic. My daughter loves them and comes to me every single day with one, asking to read. I am an avid reader and I think that reading is the most important skill you can have – I am very happy that your books are making her so keen to want to learn too. Thank you.
