5.0 out of 5 stars The children can get it right when the adults fail, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Never Seconds: The Incredible Story of Martha Payne (Paperback)
This is a well written book and reminds me well of the story that I started reading on the NeverSeconds blog.

Having followed the Blog I had wondered what the true 'back story' was that had lead to Martha having been told to stop taking photos of her school dinner for the Blog and then going on to raise such a fantastic amount of money for Marys Meals.

By writing this book David and Martha Payne have filled in those missing details that were not out there for us to read.

It shows where the adults in the local authority got the mood of the world wrong when they choose to stop Martha's photos. It also goes on to cover the local authorities reaction to being challenged about what they claimed and the way they then further backed themselves into a corner which resulted in making out that Martha was not being accurate in her reports of her school dinners and the choice available to all the children at her school.

Featuring Martha's Blog entries and photos along with Blogs from other children who were invited to be guest Bloggers during Martha's school holiday, with an explanation of what was causing the Blogs to be written side by side in the book the format is highly effective.

If you buy this you will want to buy a copy for a friend too, it would make an ideal Christmas present.
