I remember reading this in year 10 or 11 English Literature and didn't realise quite how basic and childishly written it is. Both stories in it, however are good enough reads in themselves and I shall be saving this book to read to any children I may have in the future. Morbid Dickens ghost stories are perfect bedtime reading for young children......aren't they?!
This book is easy to understand because it's for beginner learner
I enjoyed it. One of then is like "The Six Sense."
