A Beast is a short story written by Guy Bass, an award winning UK writer, author and illustrator of books for children.
Set in Istanbul, the story tells about a boy who meets something very surprising when he goes fishing in the Bosphorus. The story also contains a warning of the importance of getting on well with your brothers and sisters!
Age: 14-17 (but activities included which may appeal to younger learners)
This ‘kit’ was designed by Turkish materials writers.
The kit below includes activities for you to print and copy, the complete text, and teachers' notes. The kit needs to be used selectively as each contains activities likely to appeal to different age groups.
I've just heard back from the writing team and they confirmed that the story on the site is correct, so it's quite a sudden ending.
