The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Dyslexia Friendly Books of the Year 2013 - Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 7 Award-winning Anne Fine takes a subtle look at what bravery really is in this touching story about a boy who has only one ambition in life: to join the Army. Tom struggles with learning at school but he knows that he must pass the tests in reading and writing if he is to achieve his lifelong ambition of becoming a soldier. When his home life is thrown into confusion by the arrival of triplets Milly, Tilly and Gilly, Tom, helped by his very good friend Gary, has to take drastic action to continue to achieve. And Gary really rates him for it. You have to be very brave indeed to wear some of the outfits Tom is forced into!
Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 8+
How Brave is That? by Anne Fine
Tom wants to join the army, but he has to pass his exams first! When he turns up without proper uniform on exam day, strict Mrs Dell threatens to send him home. There are spare clothes available, but is Tom brave enough to face the exam hall - in a skirt? A touching comedy, particuarly good for low ability readers.
