This issue’s cover is from Edward Ardizzone’s Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain. Brian Alderson discusses this classic picture book, now reissued in a beautiful new edition by Scholastic in ‘Classics in Short’. Thanks to Scholastic Children’s Books for their help in producing this January cover.
One of the strengths of the ‘Living with’ series is that each book introduces us to real people coping with disability. As in the other six books in the series, much good information is given in a positive, readable form. The colour photographs show clearly exactly what these health problems can mean to those who suffer from them, and some of the negative aspects of treatment are explained in a matter-of-fact way. SCOPE and the Leukemia Research Fund have worked with the authors in producing these books. Excellent for hospital libraries and for upper primary/lower secondary schools.
