Thornes Classic Short Stories - Thomas Hardy by Thomas Hardy, Mike Royston

Pupils will meet the literature requirements of the National Curriculum by studying these collections of short stories by pre-twentieth century authors. Readers of all abilities will gain increased comprehension of the stories from the integrated support material on every page. Pupils' interest is maintained by the large format and simple layout. A more complete picture of the authors is provided through completion of a number of 'compare and contrast' exercises, reinforcement activities and overview sections at the end of each story. The National Curriculum requirement to read stories from other cultures and traditions is also covered by books in the series.
