The Legend of The Dentist is a lie. At least, that's what most kids in Carolina's town seem to believe. They think it's merely a fable designed to scare them into brushing their teeth. But Carolina can't seem to shake the idea that there's something insidious bubbling under the surface of this small, island town. Maybe the answer lies in the abandoned house across the street. Or maybe, the house just looks abandoned.
An extremely durable, hardcover copy of the book.
This 114-page graphic novel is a perfect read for beginner/intermediate Spanish students as they move along their journey towards fluency. It's also a great read for anyone whose palms get a little clammy as they head to the dentist.
Features a per-page Spanish-to-English glossary.
NOTE: You can also purchase this graphic novel in inexpensive class sets.
Sorry, I would never dare spoil that here. But I will say that this book will have your students guessing until the very last page. It's first and foremost a mystery, and it's a darn good one.
The text is written at a Novice Mid level, which means it's generally appropriate for Levels 1 through 3. Although such a large range might seem odd, remember that graphic novels are quite different from straight text. With 75% of the story being told via illustrations, students have much higher tolerances for unknown vocabulary and structures. We have seen this story be very successful from beginner Spanish classes all the way through heritage classes.
It's appropriate for middle school and up. The scariness is at the level of a Goosebumps novel. It's sometimes intense, though it does not feature any graphic violence.
