Tail-end Charlie

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

In carefully detailed but lively illustrations, accompanied by notes written by hand or in typescript on postcards and official documents, we learn a great deal about food rationing, RAF training and life as a ‘Tail-end Charlie’ in a bomber.

To supplement the text, the endpapers, as well as every image, can be interrogated for additional visual information. Manning has a personal interest in his subject which shines through, and which will engage and inform Key Stage 2 and older readers.

The graphic format and factual content will particularly attract boys who are not drawn to wordier non-fiction.
