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.
