Biggles Spitfire Parade by Francis Bergese


Biggles Spitfire Parade by Francis Bergese

End of summer 1940. Biggles has been given command of the 666th Fighter Squadron, which consists of officers who do not take too kindly to discipline. We meet Lord Bertie Lissie, George 'Ferocity' Ferris and Tex O'Hara. Another pilot, Tug Carrington, arrives and immediately shows his abilities by shooting down a German Junkers bomber. Angus Mackail is flying down to join the 666th Squadron, but, due to bad weather, he is forced to land in a field. Later, in a farmhouse, he meets a jealous Canadian pilot called 'Nutty' Armand who takes him on a ride to remember. When both arrive at the 666th Squadron, 'Nutty' finds that he is going to be joining the Squadron as well.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
