We have all lost something at one time or another. But has anyone ever lost a whole airplane including the pilot? Here are stories of a lost plane and pilot, a dog, a brother, and even a whole city! Some have been found or rediscovered. Others remain missing. If your students liked the ‘Disasters’ series, they’re going to love the new ‘Astonishing headlines’ series. Designed specifically to appeal to reluctant readers, these 64-page softcover books present self-contained chapters, each a fascinating true-life ‘headline’ story. A topical book review, glossary and index accompany each title. Additionally, a comprehensive teachers guide provides answers, a suggested lesson format and ten reproducible activity pages to support each nonfiction title, focusing on giving lower-level readers the tools to construct, extend and examine the meaning of text. Also available as an e-book on www.pandabooks.jp
