Klaus Vogel and the Bad Lads

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

The Bad Lads have been around forever and are always causing trouble. Nothing really serious up to now, but even they can see that things are starting to go too far.

Joe is a bit older than the rest and is definitely the leader, the one the others look up to. So when he starts setting fires, slashing tyres and victimising the vulnerable, it's hard to stand up to him and say, 'No'.

What Joe doesn't bank on is Klaus Vogel, German refugee and skilled footballer. Klaus is a truly independent thinker, sees things with a fresh pair of eyes, has the courage of his convictions and is prepared to stand up to a bully.

Thought-provoking, dyslexia-friendly morality tale with black and white illustrations.
