PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Synopsis: Egan has been sent to visit his relatives in Instep during the annual fair. Shortly after he arrives, he hears about the mysterious Megrimum that lives on top of Knee-Knock Rise. No one has ever seen it but, on rainy days, you can hear its howl coming down the Rise.

Egan is not satisfied with just believing the Megrimum exists. He wants to know for real and actually see it. Join Egan in his quest for the truth and see what the mystery is really about. Is it better to "just believe" or does " seeing is believing" make more sense? You decide.

This print and use workbook is a child-directed literature study that requires no teacher or parental prep time.

The format is an exciting new approach to studying literature. Each page engages the student in many interesting activities. Children will explore new vocabulary in its context and answer questions that involve them in the story. Learners reflect on their own experiences to better understand those of the characters. This process ensures full comprehension of the novel. Additional activities involve illustrating, sequencing, analyzing characters, and point of view.

The literature study concludes with an organized and detailed book summary. A simple rubric is included for grading the book summary.

Get involved with the story and become a better reader.
