Brandon Brown is dying to drive his father’s 1956 T-bird while his parents are on vacation. Will he fool his parents and drive the car without them knowing and win the girl of his dreams in the process?

The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Der neue Houdini’, make this an ideal read for advanced beginning German students. Remember, the principle behind providing the this comprehension-based reader in two tenses is NOT to focus on grammar, but rather to focus on the story in the tense in which the reader and/or teacher feels most comfortable. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire German without even realizing it! We hope you enjoy reading your way to FLUENCY!
