Maria and the Friendly Goat
This is a heartwarming short story in the past simple tense, with exercises: true/false, match-up and comprehension questions. I think it will suit upper intermediates. I wrote the story and it appeared in Zdenda´s ELM magazine last year. I have now added exercises.

Wendy Hardy-Osborne
A reading comprehension. Wendy is actually Dr Who´s daughter;-)There are clues in the text that any of your students who watch Dr Who will pick up on: Buccaneer/Chula/Pentallion. And you didn´t study those subjects in the 19th century! The unscramble reads,´Her father is not a doctor, her father is the doctor. Which doctor? Dr Who, of course´.
