The Lovereading4Kids comment
A wonderful celebration of a boy who is thought to be bad but is just... different!
At school, Michael’s teachers despair of him. He is late, scruffy, cheeky and doesn’t listen. He loves reading and sums and science. But NOT the kind that happens in school. While the teachers wag their fingers, Michael gets set for the adventure of his life. Oh, how those teachers have misjudged him! The simple text is effortlessly and perfectly extended in the illustrations.
Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.
Michael by Tony Bradman
'Michael was...different. His teachers said he was the worst boy in the school. He was always late and he was a little scruffy'.
Is there no hope for him at all? Or is it good to be different? Tony Bradman's humorous text and Tony Ross' zany illustrations make Michael the ideal picture book for all children, but particularly for children who are 'different' to their peers in some way.
"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
