5.0 out of 5 stars Great new novel 14 Oct 2012
By Jaki
Polyp's new graphic novel is a great introduction to the co-operative movement. A good read for those people who might have thought co-operatives began and ended with the supermarket of the same name. Using the graphic novel format Polyp tracks the many different strands of co-operation, from the 19th century to the present day and beyond!

5.0 out of 5 stars History made fun, but not trivialised 22 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a subject close to my heart as I think the Rochdale Pioneers are unsung heros and people don't realise what they did for our society. This book remedies that.

I gives quite a detailed background, in pictures, of what made it necessary for those men to bring about a revolution. But it was a quiet and peaceful, and very successful revolution. I think every school in the United Kingdom should put this book on their curriculum. They should have multiple copies in their libraries. Child friendly, but not childish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learnt a lot! 19 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was quite a wonderful surprise. I knew of the Co-Operative, of course, having shopped there every now and then, but knew nothing of how it had come about. I was also surprised to see that the circumstances that brought about the start of the Co-Operative are in many ways similar to the ones we're experiencing in this day and age. Read it and get your children to read it too - I feel it's important to let them know that it's possible to fight back in a constructive way, such as this one.
