Publisher's Summary

He is not beautiful. His mother does not want him, children run away from him. People laugh at him, and call him "The Elephant Man". Then someone speaks to him – and listens to him! At the age of 27, Joseph Merrick finds a friend for the first time in his life. This is a true and tragic story. It is also a famous film.

An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English.

Great factual story

Great story and well read - although I do wish I'd noticed that it was for students learning English. If you are learning English, I'm sure you will enjoy it.
