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

Brilliant! Thank you for such a great activity.
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.
This was just what I was looking for for my Eal and weaker readers . Thank you
