Level 4 of this Japanese Graded Reader series brings on an extra 40 pages, and a lot more solid material. This set in particular I found to be excellent (far more interesting than Volume 2). In fact, for 野菊の墓 alone I would give this set a 5 out of 5 rating. I’ve read many books in my life, but this is the only one that ever made me cry. Excellent stuff. Highly recommended.
While the material definitely had some vocabulary and things I did not understand, I could generally make it out by context or accompanying pictures. I made a point of never looking anything up. If you can comfortably take the Japanese Language Proficiency Test Level N3, this set should be a piece of cake for you, but well worth it!
