Synopsis

Our City School by Deborah Chancellor

A group of friends from The Mulberry Primary School in Tottenham, north London are going on a walk. The children have planned their walk carefully and have a list of questions they want to answer about their local area. We then follow them as they explore thier local area and answer their questions. This book is part of 'A walk from' series which explores different geographical environments using maps and photos. It helps young children understand geographical similarities and differences through studying the human and physical geography of a small area of the United Kingdom. The books feature key physical and human geographical vocabulary and skills such as compass directions, map reading and recognising landmarks and features.

About the Author

Deborah Chancellor

Q & A with the Author about her book The Perfect Rebel

What made you want to write this book?
Emily Davison, because she was an amazing woman who did everything she could to help give women more rights. Today, Emily’s story is almost forgotten ... but not quite. I wanted to write it down so more people could hear about it.

Who is your role model?
My daughter Imogen is my role model. She never lets her dyslexia stop her from trying her best, and being really cheerful about everything that she does.

Which suffragette do you most admire?
The suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst. She stood up for her beliefs, even though it didn’t make her popular with some people. She really wanted to make a difference to the world she lived in.

If you could meet Emily Davison, what would you say to her?
I would ask Emily what I should say to people who can’t be bothered to vote.
