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.
SECONDARY Anyone who has had to find support material for or, God forbid, had to teach - GNVQ Part 1 Leisure and Tourism will fall upon this book with open arms. Plenty of clear maps and colour photographs illustrate a manageable text, though some better proof-reading is in order with one map of seaside resorts listing Infracombe (sic) and Barnstable (sic). A particular feature are the fact boxes which provide straightforward statistics such as the country of origin of visitors to Britain, top ten buildings in numbers of visitors and top ten leisure parks - with most of the figures coming from 1993. Chapters include Tourism in Towns, The Countryside, Transport and Tourism, and The Future. There are also 'Case Studies' of the Cumbria Tourist Board, Blackpool, and Center Parcs - though, to my mind, 130 words of text and a half page photo scarcely deserve such a grand title.
