Reviews

Here is a book that will stretch and stimulate pupils, and have teachers rubbing their hands with glee. A delightfully diverse selection of comprehension extracts and writing tasks to help prepare children for 11+ and beyond. Mike Erien, head of English, Terra Nova School With this book, Andrew Hammond achieves that rare balance between providing what teachers should have and what they would enjoy teaching. This book will not gather dusk from lack of use. Teachers and parents alike will feel the benefits of Andrew's fine control of what works in the prep school classroom. Andrew Rose, Head of English, Cumnor House School, Sussex
