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 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

    I haven't used it in the classroom yet but I'm hopeful that it will help a child with EAL.
