Can anyone recommend some KS3 comprehension textbooks for me to do with my child? Preferably with answers!

E.G. Thorpe
Complete English (we are using book 5)
This gives passages and tests comprehension

Angus Maciver
The New First Aid in English
This explains and tests understanding and vocabulary. Not traditionally what is meant by comprehension books, but it is a great way of exposing children to all sorts of English styles which they will encounter within a comprehension test.

It's American but I love this as a reference book.

Assessment Papers
These come in different age groups and give passages and test questions

Any idea where i can get the Thorpe book 5 from? It's on Amazon at £200! All the other ones are more reasonably priced....
