The DSF Bookstore now offers an excellent range of classroom bundles which include multiple copies of each book in the series. These bundles are designed for use in classrooms for reading groups, intervention programs, or as take-home readers. These bundles make it easy for teachers to ensure that all students have access to high quality reading materials at the right level.
This bundle contains three (3) sets of the Titan's Gauntlets!, Talisman 2, and Amber Guardians series (90 readers in total) along with one (1) of each of the corresponding, photocopiable workbooks (three workbooks in total).
Titan's Gauntlets is a set of ten imaginative stories with fantastic illustrations, which introduce further alternative vowel and consonant spellings and common Latin suffixes. This series follows on from the Talisman 1 Series and offers increasingly challenging texts for children who are coming to grips with the complex spellings of English, and will stimulate and engage the older, struggling reader.

- A focus on reading, spelling and comprehension
- Enhanced vocabulary development
