⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "It is nice to have an "up-to-date" novel study set of comprehension materials to go with this classic novel. I have an older novel study for it, but it is very grammar based and a little dry. I like the more modern reading strategy/black line masters. I also like having comp. questions to review/highlight events in each chapter. I am very happy with my purchase. The price is also very fair. Thanks for creating it!" Buyer
