Four phonics stories specially designed to help children of all abilities overcome language-based learning difficulties.

Besties Meg and Greg are off to sleep-away camp for the summer! Along with your standard camp activities (swimming and making crafts) the duo have a run-in with a skunksing a silly song about a king, go on a canoe trip that has one glitch after another, and make a mess in the lodge with a fresh batch of fudge!

Frank and the Skunk is the second book in the Orca Two Read series designed for shared reading between a child learning to read or struggling to read and an experienced reader, following A Duck in a Sock. Inside you'll find four stories that introduce one new phonogram (a letter or combination of letters that represent a sound) in each story: nkngtch and dge phonograms. The stories have special features to help a child with dyslexia or another language-based learning difficulty find reading success.

Kirkus Reviews
“A thoughtfully designed storybook adds another helpful tool to the box for readers who need support.”
CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“A number of reading features to assist struggling or dyslexic readers...Comic-style illustrations are engaging and add humour to the story...The four stories are well-paced...The partnering of the adult/buddy’s reader’s page and the kid’s page works beautifully.”
