"This makes me want to read my own books all over again" (Louis de Bernières)

"I didn't realise how good the series was until I started working closely with it. The questions are so thoughtful and probing... the texts really do occupy their own niche between guides purely for teachers and the ubiquitous student crib, and are much better than either" (Head of English, Newington College)
