What do teachers have to say about this resource? (1247)
'This resource provides a wealth of background knowledge to promote independent reading. It also gives a very detailed reading of the novel, section by section to support analysis. It is very well written and therefore provides a model for students' own writing.... The tracking of motifs like blood and breathe were very detailed and illuminating. ' - B Jennings, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
