A mum's review!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Trenches: Billy Stevens, the Western Front, 1914-1918 (My Story) (Paperback)
This is not so much a review on the book itself but more about its effect. This book was bought by chance for my thirteen year old son. He is a very reluctant reader and finds reading and English very difficult. He has sadly only read one book in the past year. This is despite being given lots of encouragement by us all. However, this book was read by him inside a week, at every available opportunity he picked it up. He has told us all what a great book it is, how interesting he found it and how the words were put together in such a way that he could really imagine being around during that time. He has now asked me to get him another two books from the same series, because he wants to read some more. Now what book could have a better recommendation than that? Thank you to the author and the publishers.

Another Mum's comment, I discovered these books a couple of years ago, my son is also a reluctant reader and finds English difficult, but he too has been gripped by these books, we have many of them on the book case now and he re-reads them often. He is 16 in a few weeks and I am looking to see if the series has any more books in it that he has not yet read as other books have not yet caught his imagination. Another big thank you to the authors and publishers.
