The Bank Raid is a short story is a short story in 5 chapters told by five of the people involved in a robbery at a bank. The story is taken up and advanced a little by each person in turn. Although the story of the raid on the bank is complete in itself, readers are asked, if they wish, to invent a sixth chapter describing if and how the robbers were caught.

The Bank Raid is quite easy to read and should appeal to a wide range of students. It has a vocabulary of about 520 different words. Like The Accident and The Fire, it could be used as the basis for role play and aural comprehension and as stimulus for writing.
