STRATEGIC EDITORIAL APPROACH: Each of the three levels in the MARVEL titles in the World of Reading line takes a targeted approach to learning to read: Level 1 introduces the character and his world; Level 2 tells the origin of the hero; and Level 3 recounts one of the hero's greatest battles. The texts become more challenging with each level, until the reader, after mastering Level 3, is ready for chapter books.
