By Victor Hugo. Retold by Jennifer Bassett. Illustrated by Giorgio Bacchin. Publisher: Oxford University Press.
Oxford Bookworms Library Stage 1（400語レベル）
語数 7,302 YL 2.1 64ページ
審査員評: This well-written retelling is an excellent way for beginner/elementary level learners to get to know this great story. We found ourselves involved in the story, caring about the characters. In particular, the “set-the-stage” sections help the reader quickly catch up on important events without creating an overly-complex narrative. The recent popularity of the film musical should increase students’ interest, and lead many to a rewarding reading experience.
Adolescent & Adult: Intermediate
The Green Room
By Robert Campbell. Illustrated by Valentina Russello. Publisher: Helbling Languages.
審査員評: This is story about adolescents’ conflicts and growing up process. What makes it special is the clever way in which the author interweaves the main plot with the plot of the play-within-the story. This is a well-constructed narrative with a cleverly written plot that develops exploring parallels with Shakespeare’s work.
Adolescent & Adult: Upper Intermediate & Advanced
By Richard MacAndrew. Map artwork by Malcolm Barnes. Publisher: Cambridge University Press
審査員評This original murder mystery, set in a rural community, is a compelling read for crime story enthusiasts. Moving back and forth between the voices of the criminal and the police, MacAndrew draws the reader into the narrative. With clear, yet vivid language, the reader is able to participate in the problem-solving of the detectives as they unravel the mystery.
