This was a life saver as there was little on the internet to help me. I was planning for a ks2 class and had been recommended this series by a colleague. I found the chapter summaries very helpful and I liked the range of activities and the suggestions as to how to extend or support the activity. I was using it for my lessons and perhaps was asking for more than it was designed for as I found the section on 'plot, character and setting had a lot on character and setting but little to help you teach about the plot; in fact I had to make this bit up myself. Like I said, it was not really described as a lesson planning tool but it was worth what I paid for it and helped me plan 6-8 lessons. I could have got a lot more lesson planning out of it if we were continuing to focus on the book. I would definitely buy another in the future.
