True Adventures- Devika Rangachari, Kekla Magoon
These great novellas from Pushkin Press are action packed recounts of real life historical events, but told from a different perspective to what we may have previously encountered, and that's a good thing! I can't wait to share these with pupils, who will love these action packed tales, I'm certain.
Fun, fast, factual - I almost found these addictive in nature, desperate to know more about these exciting new figures, and I particularly loved the fact pages at the end that added detail and dates to the events that were described in the stories, along with the lively and attractive illustrations.
