The Autobots like living in the scrapyard. One day, Steeljaw and the Decepticons come in. Steeljaw says, "I want the scrapyard!" Ladybird Readers is a graded reading series of traditional tales, popular characters, modern stories, and non-fiction, written for young learners of English as a foreign or second language. Beautifully illustrated and carefully written, the series combines the best of Ladybird content with the structured language progression that will help children develop their reading, writing, speaking, listening and critical thinking skills. The six levels of Readers and Activity Books follow the CEFR framework and include language activities that provide preparation for the Cambridge English: Young Learners (YLE) exams. Transformers: Decepticons in the Scrapyard, a Level 1 Activity Book, is Pre-A1 in the CEFR framework and supports YLE Starters exams. The activities encourage children to practice short sentences containing a maximum of two clauses, using the present tense and some simple adjectives.
