Oxford Bookworms Library: The Phantom of the Opera REVIEW

I feel like I haven't reviewed anything to do with phantom of the opera for a very long time, except for a review of the live Broadway show. Before hitting the sack I decided to read this very simplified version of the Gaston Leroux novel that I just bought from Amazon a few weeks ago.

Jennifer Bassett writes this adaptation of Gaston Leroux's novel. It is pretty much very true to the tale, but it's very simplified as it's meant for a small child to read. In addition to the story  there is a glossary, and questions to answer before you read the book, while you are reading the book and after you read the book. These additional pages make this book a worthy tool for teachers who chose to introduce young kids to phantom of the opera.....or maybe it's just perfect for the crazy phan intending to make sure their future children know everything about the phantom of the opera.

Not a bad book to have in your phantom collection, especially when you want to teach your young relatives about phantom of the opera.
