Paper Trails extends the series of very popular Paper... books by Richard Baines, and is aimed at Year 7 and 8 students. The book is constructed on the same lines as the Paper series—stories of a length to cater for a lesson which will offer writing, reading, speaking and listening opportunities to students and provide teachers with ready-made lessons, including activities for the classroom and homework. It is theme-based, using a variety of themes which are sure to interest students in this age group- childhood, myths and legends, laughter, fantasy, families, horror, etc. These themes have been researched with each of the NSW, Queensland, and Victorian education departments. Each of the eight themes comprise four stories together with activities and discussion points.
