A new book for dyslexic children

The Monkey's Fart has a foreword by Charley Boorman
If you love reading, then you’ll love this book. If you don’t like reading, or are dyslexic, then this book is still for you! Sometimes irreverent but always funny, The Monkey’s Fart is a serious attempt to interest children in poetry and reading. The book has a foreword by Charley Boorman and is supported by Dyslexia Action.

"As a dyslexic himself, the author, Mike Skyner, understands the battle many kids have to master language. His poem My Left Brain demonstrates the frustrations many dyslexics have with the process of writing poetry. I applaud Mike's attempt to present kids with the toolkit to be creative, to get writing and have fun."

- Stephen Edden, 
Author of ‘The Wordsmith's Tale’


  1. First off, what is dyslexia? Dyslexia, in layman's terms is a specific learning disorder that affects the neurons. It's very common, with approximately 20% of the population having the disorder. Visit our website for more information.

  2. Thanks for the link Abby. There is some interesting new research into the design of different typefaces to make reading easier for children with dyslexia. That can only be a good thing!

  3. It is not any special disease, but the neurological condition in the brain which can be optimized by reading such kind of books under special authorized professionals or taking advice from Dyslexia
