Homemade 1963 Batmobile – level 1

17-12-2014 07:00

A man reads comics about Batman. He likes Batman very much. He wants to have a car like him.

He gets a car. He changes it. It takes him three years. Now the car looks like the Batmobile. It is very popular. It goes on auction. Somebody buys the car for 137,000 dollars.

Another man likes Batman, too. He builds a Batmobile, too. It is also very beautiful. He sold it last year. Somebody paid 4.2 million dollars for it.

Difficult words: comics (a story with pictures and with words), auction (a place where you can buy something if you pay more than other people), sold (past of sell – give for money).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you read comic books?
