A gripping, thought-provoking thriller for kids aged 8+
Young readers will be inspired to think deeply about No Man's Land by Joanna Nadin. The bundle also include an accompanying activity pack that we created to go with the book and sent to our subscribers in April 2022.
About the book
With far-right Albion on the brink of war with Europe, ten-year-old Alan and his little brother Sam are sent away to safety. Dad tells Alan he has to be brave, like the superheroes he loves, but Alan isn’t too sure. He wants to be wherever Dad is, and, anyway – can he really be sure who’s a hero and who’s a villain? This is a heart-warming, heart-breaking story of acceptance, love and bravery in all its different forms.
