The March cover of BfK features Dilly the Dinosaur who is 10 years old this year. Her author, Tony Bradman, is the subject of our Authorgraph this month. We are grateful to Reed Books for their help in reproducing this illustration from Susan Hellard's original artwork.
We follow Lockie through the ups and downs of school life, falling in and out of love and battling with industrial pollution. It's all done in a high energy, witty way which doesn't prevent understanding of teenagers' worries and fascinations. There's great fun here (has TV picked these up yet?) and once introduced to readers these titles will never be out of their hands.
