"… the exercises are accessible to the weaker reader yet they allow scope for the brighter student to be creative … I am not aware of any other book available at the moment which teaches comprehension skills in this structured way and which is so easy to use for both student and the teacher."
Geraldine Larkin, English teacher
St Mary’s Secondary School, New Ross, Ireland
