Product Description

Review

A Nod From Nelson is Falklands hero Simon Weston's first book for children. It's a humorous story with a feel-good factor, and fantastic illustrations by artist Jac Jones appear throughout the text. --The Western Telegraph

You'd be quackers not to enjoy Simon's really wild adventure. --The Express

Corny jokes, puns and tpoical references ('No Lewis Hamilton is he?') come thick and fast among the mayhem, and Jac Jones' cartoon illustrations perfectly match the charm and good humour of the story. Books in this format for children in KS2 are not normally illustrated so generously, and this does add to the fun. It's all very Welsh at St Mary Dairy in Pont-Y-Cary, with suitable rhythms and cadences, but the story flows well, and although children won't know who Simon Weston is, they will probably enjoy this. Any adults picking this book up because they know if Weston's achievements and after-dinner speeches, or lucky enough to get the chance to share this delightful book with children, will get more of the jokes! --Diana Barnes, The School Librarian

I received this book in excellent condition considering it's a 'used' book. The story is great for boys and girls and it's one I'm giving to a hospital charity this year along with 20 others.

I really enjoyed this book! I am adding it to my 'books for grandchildren' collection; I haven't got any grandchildren yet but one day, who knows.

I suspect Nelson has been talking to my pony; they seem to have a lot of views in common.
