Bestseller Readers is a series of carefully chosen classical texts,
retold by modern authors in a way that will catch students’
attention. The aim of the series is to encourage students of
English to read for pleasure, rather than just for study purposes.
Carefully graded (vocabulary, syntax, grammar and content)
illustrated classical texts in six levels, retold by modern
authors. They encourage students to read for pleasure, help develop
vocabulary and give a ‘feel’ for syntax and different expressions.
Each title includes a glossary, a CD and activity book. The eyes of
the Happy Prince were full of tears. He was so sad and beautiful
that the little swallow was sad, too. 'Who are you?' asked the
little swallow. 'I am the Happy Prince' the statue answered. 'But
you aren't happy. You're crying' said the little swallow.
