The Highlights stories were specifically written for a 10-15 year old audience who are reading below level, with each author writing three stories to create a mini-series, thus encouraging the reader to want to read more. Each mini-series covers a different genre, with a range of genres covered to help readers learn language associated with each.
Each book is supported by full-colour 'manga style' illustrations to reinforce and supplement the text. Every right-hand page is a full colour illustration to accompany the text and assist comprehension. The stories are dynamic and use a variety of dramatic devices including changes of perspective and variations of cell size and shape.
