Synopsis

Death by Lucas Wellington

This comprehensive new literacy scheme is structured around a series of high-interest, low-reading age stories designed specifically to appeal to older students, including those in special schools (BESD). The page-turning stories are set in a future post-apocalyptic world where law and order and life as we know it have broken down. The stories feature two main characters, Travis and Spanna, and are illustrated throughout with atmospheric and gritty illustrations.

About the Author

Lucas Wellington has been teaching students with BESD in inner city Bristol schools for the last 10 years and is currently part of the senior leadership team of the North Bristol BESD school. For four of these years he was Literacy co-ordinator, so was involved in buying suitable and engaging reading material, co-ordinating reading intervention programmes and promoting literacy across the school. His dismay at the suitability of the books available for such students led to him creating his own materials to develop literacy, as he became well aware that poor literacy and the stress this causes is a major cause of unsettled behaviour in classrooms. He lives in Bristol. Dave McTaggart is an illustrator of picture books, junior fiction and teenage fiction. He has illustrated children's books for a wide range of publishers including BBC Books, Harper Collins, Random House, Oxford University Press, Walker Books and Penguin. He lives in London.
