Victor Frankenstein was a brilliant scientist. He wanted to create something beautiful, but he created something terrible - a monster!
Ladybird Readers is a graded reading series of traditional tales, popular characters, modern stories, and non-fiction, written for young learners of English as a foreign or second language.
Beautifully illustrated and carefully written, the series combines the best of Ladybird content with the structured language progression that will help children develop their reading, writing, speaking, listening and critical thinking skills.
The eight levels of Readers and Activity Books follow the CEFR framework and include language activities that provide preparation for the Cambridge English: Young Learners (YLE) exams.
Frankenstein, a Level 6 Reader, is A2+ in the CEFR framework and supports YLE Flyers and KET exams. The longer text is made up of sentences with up to four clauses, more complex past and future tense structures, passives and time clauses.
Ladybird brings together characters from well-loved children's TV shows, including Peppa Pig, In the Night Garden, Ben and Holly, and the lively twosome Topsy and Tim; plus a whole host of fairy-tale favorites like Cinderella and Pinocchio. Sharing a Ladybird story with your child is a great way to start exploring the big, wide world. Whether they're discovered through snuggly bedtime favorites, buggy books that accompany adventures, or fun apps for playtime, really great stories open up whole new worlds and spark imagination, creativity, and curiosity.
