"Oxford Bookworms" offer students at all levels the opportunity to extend their reading and appreciation of English. There are six stages, taking students from elementary to advanced level. At the lower stages, many of the texts have been specially written for the series, to provide elementary and lower-intermediate students with an introduction to real reading in English. At the higher stages, most of the books have been adapted from works originally published for native speakers. The language controls used in "Oxford Bookworms" are based on a syllabus specially created for the series by Tricia Hedge. This takes account of the more traditional approaches to grading and recent research into the nature of reading difficulty. The approximate vocabulary count for each stage is: Stage 1 - 400 words; Stage 2 - 700 words - Stage 3 - 1000 words; Stage 4 - 1400 words; Stage 5 - 1800 words; Stage 6 - 2500 words. All stages have exercises for classroom or private use, plus a supporting glossary to help students with vocabulary. Illustrations are used, especially at the lower stages, to help comprehension.

About the Author:

W W Jacobs (1863-1943) was a writer of short stories. The Monkey's Paw is probably his most famous story.

From AudioFile:

The mischief of the monkey's paw is as intriguing as it was when written at the turn-of-the-century. The three wishes granted to the owner of this mysterious relic unfold in a sinister short story. Lide's smooth and distinctive British voice captures the haunting quality of the story and makes it memorable. The period mood of the voices is essential and Lide produces it beautifully. THE MONKEY'S PAW is one title in a new series called "The Creative Short Story Audio Library," from Listening Library, which includes selections of Poe, London and Conan Doyle. Each short story is recorded on a single cassette and may be paired with a beautifully designed hardcover book. The programs are attractive and accessible teaching tools. The use for language arts in the classroom is obvious and will be a fine supplement to discussion. Brief notes about the author and the context of the work complete each program. These are great choices for the whole family or an enticing introduction to audio listening. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
