Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 6.5+. A real story in history is brought to life brilliantly for the seriously struggling reader. In addition, it is also very dyslexia friendly as it’s printed on cream paper, as all Barrington Stoke titles are, with plenty of space between the lines of text on the page and plenty of illustrations too to provide that additional visual appeal for struggling readers.

The Tirpitz was one of the Nazis’ most lethal battleship during World War Two. This book is a retelling of its sinking while it was moored, heavily guarded, in a Norwegian fjord with bombs using mini submarines. Find out who was brave enough to go on this dangerous mission and was it successful?
