Maggot Moon E-book Contains Features for Dyslexic Readers

The writing itself will be showcased in a “dyslexic-friendly font.” In an interview, Gardner gave an explanation on what readers can expect when reading the digital book: “Take the letter ‘b.’ A ‘b’ flips to ‘d’ in my head all the time. So a dyslexic-friendly font puts the weight of b where it should sit on the page. It’s thicker in the round of the ‘b,’ so visually, it helps prevent me from twisting the b to the d. It looks a bit like comic sans but it’s fairly subtle. I work with it all the time because it stops the letters from bouncing.”
