Tattoos, body piercing, jewellery and face painting. People have been decorating their bodies for thousands of years. Who thought that flat heads were the latest in fashion? Who had a 4,000 year-old tattoo? Now you can find out. Get the facts. Then read 'Death by Arsenic', a story about what happens when you start to believe the adverts. Body Art is part of the Trailblazers series, published by Ransom Publishing. It is ideal for older children and young adults with a reading age of 5 - 8. The books are suitable for general reading or as part of a more structured reading programme. Each book is on a strong, popular topic, with a colourful, attractive layout, combining fact and fiction. Each book has a non fiction and a fiction section. The fiction story appears in two formats - one with simple texts for poor readers; the facing pages contain an illustrated "speech bubble" version of the same story, for those who are just starting to learn to read. These two levels of entry give access points for children and young adults with different reading ages. The vocabulary of each book is carefully limited, with simple sentences to reinforce reading skills, which make the books suitable for even the poorest readers.
