Oxford Reading Tree Treetops Graphic Novels: Level 16: Freedom Train by Glen Downey

In The Freedom Train a young slave girl named Lizzie escapes from her owner with the help of her friend Elijah. When Elijah is killed, Lizzie has to trust others to guide her on a secret path to freedom, called the Underground Railroad. Will Lizzie reach the 'promised land' before she is caught?

These historically-themed stories contain links to real events and non-fiction pages to give context and purpose to reading. The thought-provoking topics make these stories ideal for encouraging discussion and drama. Books contain inside cover notes to support children in their reading. Help with children's reading development also available at www.oxfordowl.co.uk. The books are finely levelled, making it easy to match every child to the right book.
