Speech bubbles the text from the original novel work with the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling. A running glossary at the foot of each page helps young readers with any challenging vocabulary without disrupting their reading experience. End matter provides information about the author, the historical background to the period in which the author lived and the timeline of world events that places the work in historical context.
