This brand-new anthology features original stories written by popular and debut authors and is aimed at English home-language learners in the senior phase.

The short stories vary in narrative structure, setting, theme and voice and are arranged in this collection according to these literary features.

The anthology includes anecdotal stories, folk tales, science fiction and sociopolitical satire and covers personal and social relationships, giving pupils much food for thought.

Educational content aligned to Curriculum Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) adds to this collection, helping to develop and improve pupils' reading and comprehension skills.

This book is especially suitable for supplementary class reading. It includes all types of reading process questions: pre-reading, during reading, and post-reading.
