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 shake the idea that there's something insidious bubbling under the surface of this small island community. Maybe the answer lies in the abandoned house across the street. Or maybe, the house just looks abandoned.
This 114-page graphic novel is a perfect read for beginner/intermediate French 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 French-to-English glossary.

" My French students absolutely loved Le Manoir De La Dentiste. In fact most of them couldn't even put it down!"
It's appropriate for middle school and up. It's on the level of a Goosebumps novel. Yes, it's sometimes scary and intense, though it does not feature any graphic violence. More than anything, the book is a mystery.
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.
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.
I had the pleasure of working with the excellent translator, Agnès Denvir, a native speaker of France as well as a French teacher. Not only is her language impeccable, but she also knows how to pare down the language to essential high-frequency structures. Additional translations were made by Cécile Laine, another native speaker and French teacher. Of course, don't take my word for it. Please read the 18-page preview.
In addition to the cheapest per/book cost, you will receive two free gifts: (1) a free digital download of the teacher's guide, which is normally $45 and (2) a free digital download of the Dentiste music videos and support materials, which is normally $20.
