Tom and Ricky Mystery Series - Set 2

by Bob Wright

The Tom and Ricky series has been a favorite of teachers for over 25 years. They feature 14-year-olds, and their dog, Patches, who solve mysteries in their home town. The stories revolve around events and places that students should be familiar with, and therefore, little background knowledge is required in order to read these stories.

Each Tom & Ricky story is written at a 1st grade reading level, with:

  • 75% decodable text
  • 20% sight words (Fry 100-200 and Dolch Preprimer-First word lists)
  • 5% challenge words

    Artwork by noted artist Patrick Faricy ensures a combination of high interest and low readability for beginning and struggling readers!
