Description

This brand new addition to the "Usborne Young Reading" series focuses on animals and the roles they have played in conflict, both modern and ancient. Find out how elephants helped Hannibal attack Rome, why pigeons saved hundreds of lives in World Wars 1 and 2 and how a little donkey called Murphy came to the rescue of wounded soldiers in World War One, along with many other stories of heroism and courage. Usborne's "Young Reading" series was developed in conjunction with experts from Roehampton University and is designed to encourage independent reading. Each title has clear, engaging text and is accompanied by original illustrations.show more

Review quote

"Irresistible for children learning to read" - Child Education Plus; "The Usborne Young Reading Program has a lovely selection of classic tales adapted for younger readers. Graded in seven levels, these have just enough stretch in them and yet are not too overwhelming" - The Irish Sunday Independent; "Crack reading and make confident and enthusiastic readers with this fantastic reading programme" - Julia Eccleshare; 'From horses and elephants carrying armies to dogs parachuting from planes and dolphins detecting mines, animals have played part in some of the bloodiest battles in history. Their stories are compelling and as tragic as those of the soldiers they served' - Write Awayshow more
