Fiction Express

The Fiction Express range of books offers fast-action stories for children of age 6+. Some of Britain’s best-loved authors have created some unforgettable characters, rich and exciting storylines, cliff-hanging chapter endings and gripping finales.

Fiction Express books have been carefully graded into four categories, according to reading age: Purple (reading age 6+), Orange (reading age 8+), Red (reading age 9+) and Blue (reading age 10+). The four levels combine into a comprehensive reading programme for KS1-2 and beyond.

Fiction Express operates in the UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The plot of the story has been decided on by children – they voted for what happens in each chapter.
