OBW Collections: The Eye of Childhood

Author: John Escott, Jennifer Bassett

Published: 08/02/2001

Level: Advanced (C1-C2) - Teenagers

Format: Paperback: 156 pages


Six volumes of themed short stories by well-known authors, both classic and modern.

The texts are not abridged or adapted in any way, but have been selected for content and language that will be understood by the advanced student.

  • Ideal for students who are beginning to read unadapted literature.
  • Short, thought-provoking introduction to each story.
  • Language notes on difficult vocabulary.
  • Discussion questions, language focus questions, and activities.


What does it feel like to be a child? Learning how to negotiate with the unpredictable adult world, learning how to pick a path through life's traps and hazards, learning when the time has come to put away childish things. The writers of these short stories show us the world as seen from the far side of the child-adult divide, a gap that is sometimes small, and sometimes an unabridgeable chasm
