Adventures at Sea by Robert Louis Stevenson, Herman Melville, Daniel Defoe


Adventures at Sea by Robert Louis Stevenson, Herman Melville, Daniel Defoe

Including Treasure Island, Moby Dick and Robinson Crusoe, Adventures at Sea is a collection of illustrated sea-faring classics retold as exciting and fast-paced graphic novels for young readers, a format which is particularly popular with reluctant readers. Straightforward narratives in modern English accompany key excerpts from the original novels, and difficult words and phrases are explained as they occur. A running glossary at the foot of each page helps young readers with any challenging vocabulary without disrupting their reading experience. Specially commissioned, full-colour, dramatic artwork faithfully respresents set-pieces from the plays, and brings excitement and atmosphere to the tales. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
