A really excellent reader for Class 7, Stone Fox is an exciting and fast‐moving story set in the Rocky Mountains of Wyoming in the early 1900s, with a powerful, tragic ending. The text, although an original, slightly abridged, is a fairly easy read, illustrated throughout in black‐and‐white. It has been used with great success in many classes, and is a true modern classic.

Vocabulary & Exercises

The Work Section comprises two separate vocabularies – Thematic and Page by Page – and well over a hundred exercises, offering practice with question words, tense‐changing, forming questions, negatives and normal statements in different tenses, vocabulary‐work, comprehension exercises on different levels and simple guided writing. There is material for very varied ability levels, from weak pupils to fast and confident learners.

The teacher is provided with background notes on the author and the book, and short ideas are given for dealing with the story’s ‘bitter‐sweet’ending. A List of English Irregular Verbs rounds off this new reader.

Ideas on How to Use the Exercises— PLUS All the Exercises as Individual Worksheets

As an added help for lesson preparation, teachers can download a PDF‐file of all the book’s exercises, formatted as individual single‐page worksheets. These can be printed out and copied freely as and when needed, for use as homework, class practice, revision work or tests. These are prefaced by an introductory collection of many practical ideas on using the exercises in class.

The Story In Brief:
Nothing can stop little Willy. His grandfather is sick, and now the state wants to take their farm away. Where can Willy find the five hundred dollars they need?
His only hope is the prize money for the National Dogsled Race. But others, too, want to win, including Stone Fox, the huge Indian from the mountains. He and his five beautiful Samoyeds have never lost a single race … Do Willy and his dog Searchlight stand a chance against the best dog teams in the country? Can they win the race to save the farm—and Grandfather—before it’s too late?
