I am a sixth grade Literature teacher. My students read the novel every year. They enjoy the suspense and how it is filled with figurative language. It is a great teaching tool for similes, metaphors, personification, etc. After we read the novel we watch the movie and the students do an activity with comparison and contrast of the movie and the novel. It is a great break from reading stories that don't peak their interest in basal readers. I have created an entire lesson on the book. If you are a teacher and would like a copy of my lesson email me using my screen name @yahoo and I would be happy to send you copies of my lessons.
