A decodable book featuring four phonics stories specially designed to help children with dyslexia or other language-based learning difficulties find reading success.

While Meg and Greg are visiting Greg’s family on Stardust Island they find themselves searching for one lost or missing item after another! Join Meg, Greg, cousin Martha and a puppy named Scarlet as they discover the thief who took off with a precious garnet ring at a farmers’ market, find and catch a horse named Popcorn who got lost in a forest, save a surfer who fell from his board and got badly hurt and chase an escaped teddy bear dangling from a helium balloon at a fun fair.

Meg and Greg: Scarlet and the Ring is the fourth book in the Meg and Greg series designed for shared reading between a child learning to read and an experienced reader. Inside you'll find four stories that focus on words with r-controlled vowels. For the first time in the series, readers will also be introduced to multiple spellings for a single sound.

Praise for the Meg and Greg series:

“A thoughtfully designed storybook adds another helpful tool to the box for readers who need support.” —Kirkus for Frank and the Skunk

“A unique approach to high-interest texts for reluctant burgeoning readers, this book offers phonics fun wrapped in serious research-based success.” —School Library Journal for A Duck in a Sock

“The stories offer both flashes of humor and plenty of action to drive the instructional intent.” —Booklist for A Duck in a Sock

“Provides a supported flow to the reading of each story that enables the young reader to gain confidence. The modelling by the adult /buddy reader provides strategies for the young reader. At the same time, the story requires each partner to contribute to the reading in order to discover and enjoy each adventure. This partnership makes shared reading a special experience for both readers. Highly Recommended.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“An extremely useful and entertaining series for striving readers; children reading this book along with their partner are not only getting the adventures of Meg and Greg, but learning their sight words and phonics with ease.”
– School Library Journal
“Children will love how Meg and Greg find everything and everyone who is lost…Recommended for those with dyslexia and beginning readers.”
