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.
Twenty-three tales of heroism which encompass a vast range of human experience from Clare Francis and Christy Brown to Mary Seacole and Nelson Mandela. The book's strength derives from the conscious variety of story styles, characters and experiences which Masters has assembled. I'd recommend it for consideration as a non-fiction text at KS4 or as a dip-in book for reluctant readers who aren't too seduced by fiction. Shame about the cover and rather flat, limp llustrations.
