If my department were to purchase "Holes", wild horses wouldn't stop me from purchasing this resource

The booklet features a huge array of tasks, which vary from comprehension questions to media activities, and creative writing projects to challenging quizzes. The worksheets maintain a level of differentiation by presenting a more challenging aspect of work at the end of each chapter’s activities, thus offering the classroom teacher that all-important extension activity for the more able of pupils.

If my department were to purchase "Holes", wild horses wouldn't stop me from purchasing this resource... As with the other activity books that I have reviewed, this is a thorough, engaging and well-presented resource [which] matches the English National Curriculum guidelines perfectly... The author seems to have a genuine awareness of what teachers and pupils require when studying a novel. I would be happy to recommend this resource.

These are the best resources I have seen from ZigZag... It is time saving and thorough

E Hands, Teacher & ZigZag Customer

It is very detailed, teacher and student friendly, and useful, I would purchase and use it. It gets students to think about the text, use inference, deduction, and textual reference, which all enhance learning and match the English curriculum and literacy strategy.

Good value with a wide range of activities.
