The Lovereading4Kids comment

This largely pictorial insight into the First World War sets out the story of the war from Outbreak to the Final Shots across fourteen big pages of illustrations with flaps that can be lifted to reveal further information. The major topics covered are life in the trenches, the dramatic war at sea, the war in the skies conducted in aeroplanes which were only just safe to fly in and the war as it spread to Turkey. Readers will be easily drawn in by the illustrations but will also learn many facts from the text.

Synopsis

See Inside First World War by Rob Lloyd Jones

This is a fascinating flap book packed with essential information about the First World War, from the start of the conflict in 1914, to its resolution in 1918. Each of the eight double page spreads have flaps to lift to find out more, allowing the reader to look inside trenches, see an attack across no man's land, see what goes on inside a tank, and how fighter planes defended the skies against airships. Scenes include a battleship fight, the war in the skies, trenches on the Western Front, and a tank battle in no man's land.

Reviews

'Perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2, a mix of facts, humour and novelty flaps...This series is proof that the right non-fiction still sells' - The Bookseller'

'As a first introduction for younger readers, Rob Lloyd Jones's See inside the First World War presents the information in small-sized bites and with the help of flaps' - Guardian Children's Books

About the Author

Rob Lloyd Jones

Rob Lloyd Jones never wanted to be a writer when he grew up. He wanted to be a fireman. Or a polar explorer. Or a deep-sea diver. And sometimes a pirate too. But, when it came down to it, he didn’t much like fire, or ice, or sharks, or even swords. So he decided to write about them instead. Since then, he’s written several books on subjects ranging from animals at war to the history of Islam. He loves it. But he still dreams about being a fireman.
