What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'What distinguishes the series from all the others is the zest and freshness of the text. Where the emphasis in other series is on plain and straightforward language, Cambridge English Reading texts typically use very modern expressions and the dialogue is faster moving. This has an impact on the quality of the audio cassettes, which make for very enjoyable listening.' David R. Hill, Survey Review: Readers, ELT Journal

'It was only a matter of time before a major ELT publisher set out to challenge the market dominance of Penguin Classics in the area of readers … CUP have hit back admirably. With something for everyone in your classes, this series is well worth investing in. In fact, it's going to be a difficult act to follow by other publishers.' IATEFL Issues

'The series breaks new ground in two respects. The first is the light and informal style of writing. It is notoriously difficult to write fluent prose using restricted lexis and syntax. Part of the secret is to use word and grammar lists flexibly; but it requires flair and a good ear to produce prose and dialogue that read so well and give such a genuine flavour of modern idiom.' English Teaching Professional

'These were a very good read: exciting fast-moving stories at all levels, and a good mixture of subjects. Most touched on up-to-date themes, such as corruption, refugees, psychology, hunger, feminism, or ecology without being prosy, or moralising.' BaNina Vivanco, SATEFL Newsletter Vol 19 No 3

'This is a well presented, authentic looking series of readers that students should enjoy. They are graded into five levels, and the accompanying cassette will be useful, especially for pronunciation — audio versions are very popular with students.' Josephine Caruana, Network News, Issue 34

Penny Wade is a musician in the Barston Symphony Orchestra.She plays the double bass and she always take care of it .But one day her boudle bass has disappear while it was carried by track.What happen to her double bass and where is it?I think it is a good mystery in the graded readers.The reason is that there are many clues to the truth and it is a little difficult to find it.

This story was mystery.The orchestra which Penny belonged to went to Barcelona and hers doube bass was lost.Moreover the manarger of that orchestra waa killed by someone...I was exciting on the scene that two women fought violently!I recommend this book to the people who like mistery and want to be thrilling.

The end of the story she lost one more things which was important to her.I could easily guess the murder. I think this is one of boring books.

When Barston Symphony Ochestra arrived at Barcelona,Penny Wade's double bass was missed.At the newspaper,cezanne's paint "The Gardener" was taken by thieves.After the concert,someone killed Frank Shepherd who is Ochestra Manager.When I have a look at those, those have no relation each.But the end of this story, you'll know how those are concerned.If you like mystery story, please read it.This book is almost easy so don't be afraid of reading.

This is a story of the missing Penny's doublebass. And at the same time, the orchestra manager, Frank was killed. In addition to that penny's boyfriend,Simon desappeared.I like this book because I like mystery very much. This story includes murder and also love story. I've played violin for six years in orchestra, so I can feel close to this story. Through reading, I was interested, I wanted to kwou who is the suspect of the missing doble bass and murder.
