More About the Author

I was born and brought up in London and still live there. As you'll see from the list of books available here, I keep myself busy! I've written poetry and picture books, short and long fiction and educational books and plays. Highlights for 2013 include STORIES OF WORLD WAR ONE (Orchard), an anthology of stories by some of today's top children's writers that I've edited; MY BROTHER'S KEEPER (A&C Black), a story about the First World War I've written with my son Tom; and some more books in the brilliant OUP Project X reading scheme. I also review for The Guardian and do school visits - and you can find me on Facebook and Twitter (@tbradman). I also have a website - www.tonybradman.com.

Product Description

Review

"Everyone knows an unconventional genius like Michael but it takes a combination like Bradman and wacky cartoon-style illustrator Tony Ross (he of the angry red cheeks and tiny turned-up noses) to bring him to life so effectively." (The Glasgow Herald)

"Perpetually in trouble for being scruffy, cheeky and not liking the kind of books, numbers or art they had in school, he is predicted by sour-faced teachers to 'come to no good'. But he has the last laugh - he becomes a rocket scientist and blasts off in a streak of red." (The Times)

"Michael is a powerful story that comes as a real breath of fresh air." (Early Years Educator)

"Michael is different, goes his own way, is extremely non-conformist at school, but surprises in the end in the simply effective story." (School Librarian)

"This can be enjoyed by every and any one who likes a story and is a lesson to us all." (Carousel) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

Re-issue of this hilarious classic Bradman/Ross collaboration, perfectly demonstrates the often unconventional nature of genius. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Described as good quality, but the covers were falling off and there were mould spots on the pages. Very disappointing indeed. I certainly could not give it to a child! However I have since got this book from another source and the story is brilliant about a boy who goes his own way in school but becomes a success through following his interest in space rockets.

Michael is different! He doesn't conform and you will have to read the book to see how this book ends. My children loved the pictures, and read and reread the pages with me. I now use it as astarting point for moral discussions with my sixth form classes. Never fails to make them laugh on the last page!

Certainly wouldn't describe this book as being in good condition. The cover is badly creased, some pages have been folded over and there is writing (pencil so can be rubbed out but still) inside the book. Disappointed.

This is a fab book! Perfect for all boys who feel they dont fit in or conform but actually have loads to offer in an unconventional way.
