-126 Questions total. This does not include the Book Review Form at end which can be used for ANY novel. Great resource.
-Questions: about 1/2 require two (or more) sentences, the rest are a combination of fill in the blank and brief response, and there are a few which ask for longer responses.
-Directions read as follows: "Questions must be answered with at least two complete sentences for full credit, unless otherwise stated.
Questions with asterisks do not require complete sentences - phrases or single words okay, if it answers the question/s. Errors in capitalization and punctuation will be counted."

*My students are below level, so the questions are not all higher order thinking questions (but some are). They are probably around 7th grade level questions, although I use the book with 10th grade.
