Wings: Flyboy

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

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

On the football field and off it, Jatinder always wants to excel, but he always takes the easy option instead of the risky one.

While staying at a summer school next to an abandoned airfield, Jatinder reads a book by a World War 1 pilot, Hardit Singh Malik, and finds himself transported into battle inside a Sopwith Camel aeroplane. Did his adventure really happen, or was it a dream? Either way, his experience gives him the bravery to take a risk that really pays off.

A perfect read for any reader looking for excitement and a relatable character, this is also one of Barrington Stoke's super readable series, produced specifically to help anyone with text accessibility issues, by using accessible font and layouts.

Tom Palmer is a very popular author and it's a delight that this World War 1 adventure also features the achievements of a British Sikh pilot as well as a Sikh boy protagonist. Highly recommended.
