'As a teacher using the Amazing People ELT Readers in an Extensive Reading Project, I'm as happy as my students are: motivating topics/real people, interesting facts and a great alternative to Graded Reader fiction. Having said that, the same class is also reading books from the Agatha Christie series, and enjoying them very much. Their Reading Diaries are full of questions, speculation about who-dunnit and comments about "unputdownability". The buzz in the classroom when we're swopping books is tangible.'
