Amazing new CGP Workbooks for GCSE English Literature!

Every time we meet new people at a party, or on the bus, the first thing we say to them is:

“CGP has the No.1 bestselling range of GCSE Text Guides and Poetry Guides in the UK!”

Strangely, they usually avoid eye-contact and start edging away slowly. So it’s lucky we have a new opening line we can try out:

“Did you know that CGP now makes fantastic Workbooks to match their smash-hit GCSE Text Guides and Poetry Guides?”

We can then go on to explain that they’re packed with superb practice questions to help students build a rock-solid knowledge of their set texts — and score a top grade in the new 9-1 GCSE exams.

As a final flourish, we can casually mention that they cover a brilliant range of popular plays and novels, as well as AQA Anthology Poetry.

We think we’re going to make lots of new friends.
