Name: Esther Leung Ai-ting Age: 17 School: Heep Yunn School Achievement: The sixth former compiled four of the short stories in Ten 'Must Read' Classic Stories, a Level Two publication by Witman. 'I summarised four classic stories and made them easier for Form Two to Three students to understand,' said Esther. 'Two of them are from the Sherlock Holmes series - The Adventure of the Copper Beaches and Boscombe Valley Mystery, and the other two are Beauty and the Beast and Robin Hood.' It was Esther's father who came up with the idea of getting the stories published. 'I did one for fun and my dad thought it was good. So he went looking for publishers who would print it,' she said. 'Then Witman asked me if I could do a few more as part of a reader for local students and I said yes.' It was not an easy task as she had to read many books to find the right stories. 'And I had to design some post-reading activities, such as multiple choice questions to test the readers whether they understood the story, a writing exercise or discussion points,' Esther said. 'But it was a learning experience for me.'
