Highly recommend this to all English teachers - particularly at Key Stage Three. This is essentially a collection of short stories (one - An Interview with a Vampire is an extract from the novel). It includes genres such as ghost stories, fairy tales, crime, love stories and Science fiction. It also has a mix of classic (such as Brothers Grimm and Conan Doyle) and modern tales (such asAngela Carter, Robert Westall) in each section so it is great to start introducing pupils to the idea of comparison.

The stories have been selected to meet the current framework and curriculum and there are questions and activities at the back which are useful. However, these stories can be adapted to use with different units or just as an enjoyable class reader.

For me, there are two stand-out stories which my pupils have loved as well - 'Sound of Thunder' (Bradbury) and 'Lamb to the Slaughter' (Dahl.) A great resource.

Okay but predictable reading. Okay if you like predictability. Expected bit more on the genre so dissapointed by the title and what you actually get inside.
