Fiction Express is an innovative book platform encouraging reading for pleasure through co-creation of stories. Using their weekly votes, students are able to decide where the plot goes next, then the author brings the most popular choice to life. Teachers are  fully supported with curriculum aligned resources. Students can access 'live' books and the back catalogue of over 100 titles in school, at home or on a mobile device.

Giglets is an online reading resource accessed by over 25,000 pupils every week. At its heart, it is a library but with one key difference - pupils are engaged in the story before they've even started to decode the text through animation, illustration, sound effects, music and audio storytelling. Use the comprehensive collection of books and resources, along with interactive comprehension questions, to track pupil progress and develop an excitement around reading.
