For a long time, this particular series was one of the first exposure to adventure books for children around the world. Now with more than 800 titles, it has become a centrepiece of the National Curriculum and is used in 80% of the nation’s primary schools as they celebrate hitting 30 years. This adventure began when Oxford Reading Tree's publications started off with 24 stories in 1986, with the main goal of teaching children to read carefully step by step. The author Roderick Hunt said he wanted to develop a reading programme based on funny comical stories, fun and motivation, after he became concerned with his own child’s progress. This series was illustrated by Alex Brychta. Hunt has said he was at first slow to start reading as a child, eventually he learned the importance of reading and stated “Good reading is so important to human development. So our vision was to get children reading, and get them off picture books and on to the world of print." The authors are always trying to stay relevant in today's modern age, including keeping up with smartphones, digital technology are now appearing in the new books. He wants to stay connected with children today and keep them engaged and interested in their stories.
The first books by Hunt were published in 1986, but spiked in popularity in particular 2015-2016 after these books were borrowed more than one million times, making it the first time he has appeared in the top 10. Now, it has been translated into many languages including more than 120 different countries. The books were originally aimed at children between ages 4 to 9, and it formed part of an English language syllabus which was in line with the National Curriculum.
