The classic tale by Robert Louis Stevenson retold for children ready to tackle longer and more complex stories. Something evil is loose in London. The menacing figure of Edward Hyde stalks the streets, barging into women, trampling children, and even murdering an old man. But who is Hyde? And what is his relationship with the respectable doctor, Henry Jekyll? Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.

My son read this to me over a few nights. He struggles with his reading so we're trying to find something that sparks his interest. He's 8. I said I'd let him watch Hammer Horror's "The Two Faces of Dr Jekyll" if he finished the book. He did and proclaimed that the book was much better than the film. Great illustrations, good pacing, some tough words but always used in easy context. We've been out and bought a couple of other Usborne Young Reading books since.
