Retold for Learners of English by Patrick Nobes.
Victor Frankenstein thinks he has found the secret of life. He takes parts from dead people and builds a new 'man'. But this monster is so big and frightening that everyone runs away from him - even Frankenstein himself!
The monster is like an enormous baby who needs love. But nobody gives him love, and soon he learns to hate. And, because he is so strong, the next thing he learns is how to kill . . .

A level 6 Oxford Bookworms Library graded reader. Retold for Learners of English by Richard Rogers
London in the 1830s was no place to be if you were a hungry ten-year-old boy, an orphan without friends or family, with no home to go to, and only a penny in your pocket to buy a piece of bread.
But Oliver Twist finds some friends - Fagin, the Artful Dodger, and Charley Bates. They give him food and shelter, and play games with him, but it is not until some days later that Oliver finds out what kind of friends they are and what kind of 'games' they play . . .

You are walking through the streets of London. It is getting dark and you want to get home quickly. You enter a narrow side-street. Everything is quiet, but as you pass the door of a large, windowless building, you hear a key turning in the lock. A man comes out and looks at you. You have never seen him before, but you realize immediately that he hates you. You are shocked to discover, also, that you hate him.
Who is this man that everybody hates? And why is he coming out of the laboratory of the very respectable Dr Jekyll?

'I like work. I find it interesting . . . I can sit and look at it for hours.'
With ideas like this, perhaps it is not a good idea to spend a holiday taking a boat trip up the River Thames. But this is what the three friends - and Montmorency the dog - decide to do. It is the sort of holiday that is fun to remember afterwards, but not so much fun to wake up to early on a cold, wet morning.
This famous book has made people laugh all over the world for a hundred years . . . and they are still laughing.

Thousands of years ago, people looked out across an ocean and asked themselves, 'What is on the other side?' And the bravest of them began to travel and find the answers - beautiful islands, frozen lands, different peoples . . . And there are still interesting questions about the oceans. How do they change our weather? Why does the water go up and down twice a day? Why do most animals and plants live near the land? And what can possibly live at the bottom of the ocean, thousands of metres down, where there is no light? Surely nothing can stay alive in a place like that . . .
The inspiring stories of 6 people who changed history.

Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective of them all. He sits in his room, and smokes his pipe. He listens, and watches, and thinks. He listens to the steps coming up the stairs; he watches the door opening - and he knows what question the stranger will ask.
In these three of his best stories, Holmes has three visitors to the famous flat in Baker Street - visitors who bring their troubles to the only man in the world who can help them.

In the jungle of Southern India the Seeonee Wolf-Pack has a new cub. He is not a wolf - he is Mowgli, a human child, but he knows nothing of the world of men. He lives and hunts with his brothers the wolves. Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther are his friends and teachers. And Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger, is his enemy.
Kipling's famous story of Mowgli's adventures in the jungle has been loved by young and old for more than a hundred years.

Right now, all over the world, people are using energy. As we drive our cars, work on our computers, or even cook food on a wood fire, we probably do not stop to think about where the energy comes from. But when the gas is gone and there is no more coal - what then? Scientists are finding new answers all the time. Get ready for the children whose running feet make the energy to bring water to their village; for the power station that uses warm and cold water to make energy; for the car that saves energy by growing like a plant . . .
Pre-University Paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Discussion and Essays, grade: 1,7, , language: English, abstract: In just ca. 15 years, the Internet has established a firm connection to almost everybody's life. And thanks to the freedom of speech and human nature, the differences in opinions are inevitable. But how boring would be the world if everyone had the same view. Especially on something revolutionary as the World Wide Web, the well of endless opportunities. For some it's frightening, for some it's essential, but what is it for you? That is for you to find out, but maybe I can give you some insight. Of course, it is out of the question that one can cover all of the topics concerning this matter, even less undertaking the attempt to read it. Many tried the impossible and many failed, but I will try anyway! So, for your sake and for the sake of my graduation, I will pass my knowledge to you, the reader, but in reasonable bits and not without loosening up the usually humorless text. I want you to imagine this text as one of your favorite stories, not as an academic paper. Acquiring all of the information is unnecessary, but what you need to know will flow in your head nicely if it is decoratively wrapped up. Nevertheless, since time is money (and I have neither) I now clear the stage and open the curtains for the famed Internet! Sit back, and enjoy the show.
