The whole book has been abridged to allow it to be accessed by EAL pupils working in a mainstream classroom. The plot line is kept but the more obscure vocabulary has been simplified. After each chapter there are comprehension/language awareness activities. It can be used in a number of ways: - at More…home prior to class in preparation for reading the original version in the lesson - homework: extra reading practice - to be worked through with specialist EAL teacher in withdrawal situations -etc etc

Thank you so much for sharing your hard work! This is a fantastic resource that challenged children's thinking, understanding and provoked some very enthusiastic discussions too!

Wonderful. My weak year 7 class have loved reading this and completing the exercises at the end of each chapter. Great to use as a springboard for other activities, creative writing etc. Thank you for sharing!

Great adaptation and comprehension exercises! This is perfect for lower level KS3 EAL learners in my school. Thank you.
