Hank the Cowdog series: About half of the MANY Hank the Cowdog books are written at DRA Level 38 / Guided Reading Level P.  (The vast majority of the remaining books are just one level higher -- DRA 40 / Guided Reading Q -- with just a few that are 30 / N).

To be honest, we have no personal experience with these books -- we'd never even heard of them until a few people wrote in to suggest we add them to our lists. There are TONS of books in this series, and they seem fairly popular on Amazon. We will look into them ourselves, but in the meantime, we thought we'd let you know about them.
