Read the article about young people and their favorite books. Then answer the questions.


This well-known book was in a box of old books that a neighbor gave me. I wasn't sure about it when I picked it up because I saw the pictures and thought it was a book for little children. But I was bored, so I started reading. After a few pages, I couldn't stop, and when I got to the last page, I was quite upset that there wasn't more. It's about two friends who play a game, and how it changes their lives. It's brilliant!


This was one of the first books I ever had, but it's still a favorite. Even before I could read, I loved looking at the drawings as my parents read the story to me. Now my little sister's got it, and she loves it too. The writer has become quite famous, but this is the first book she wrote, and not many people have heard of it. It's very different from the books she wrote later. I suppose what you write about changes as your life changes.


I read this book for the first time when I was about eight. One of the reasons I liked it was that it was about people growing up in a place which I knew nothing about. My friend read it too, and our ideas for games often came from this book. I read it again recently, and I still think it's great, except for the last few pages. What happens in them doesn't seem real.

Read the story. For each question, choose the correct answer.

A young cheesemaker 16-year-old Pat Tulloch has an unusual hobby. She makes cheese on the family farm in Australia. She began by making yoghurt with her mother when she was little. Then she started watching her father's workers make cheese. When she was ten, she made some herself for the first time. 'It wasn't great,' she says, 'but the workers told me what I was doing wrong and that helped me to slowly get better.'

Pat always needs good milk for her cheese, but she doesn't have to buy it. Her mother and father keep 100 cows on their farm. Pat can just ask them when she needs more. Last year, Pat's neighbour gave her a young cow to keep and look after, but it doesn't produce milk to make cheese yet.

Pat and her family make several types of cheese. Recently they won a prize for one of them. 'It's been great for helping customers find out about us,' says Pat. 'Last month we started selling cheese in New Zealand. People there read about our prize in a food magazine. Soon we're going to do some advertisements, too.'

Pat's next idea is to post some online recipes for cooking with cheese. 'One of my favourites is cheese with eggs for breakfast. It's great! Our cheese is also lovely with pasta — I hope a restaurant might buy some one day.' But right now Pat is still at school. 'Making cheese is fun and winning a prize for it is great, but doing well in my studies matters more for now.'

Pat learned to make good cheese

  • by listening to the advice she got.
  • by seeing how her mother did it.
  • by practising at home on her own.

Where does Pat get the milk for her cheese?

  • from her neighbour's farm
  • her father helps her to buy it
  • her parents give it to her

Pat says winning the prize means

  • more people know about her family's cheese.
  • she can be the star of the family's new advertisements.
  • she was invited to visit another country.

What's the most important thing for Pat at the moment?

  • writing a new cookbook
  • being successful at school
  • selling cheese to a restaurant

In this article, Pat is explaining

  • why her family started making cheese.
  • how to win a competition for making cheese.
  • how she has become part of a cheese-making business.

There are shopping centers around the world. They are different shapes and sizes, but the Dubai shopping center is the largest of them all. The center has around 1200 shops in the building.
