Charlie's War Illustrated: Remembering World War One

Written by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom

Charlie's War Illustrated: Remembering World War One Synopsis

Mick Manning's grandfather joined the army in 1914 and served right through World War One. Fighting in the artillery on the front line in Egypt, Palestine and France, Charlie lived to tell his tale. Here Mick and Brita tell us about Charlie's War, illustrating his story with stunning artwork, period scraps and artefacts. They movingly bring alive for children the 'war to end all wars', from the trenches and the guns to the friendships and songs the soliders shared. Produced in association with the Imperial War Museum, this is a wonderful resource for readers aged 6 and up and was nominated for the 2014 English 4-11 picture book awards. Tail-End Charlie, a previous Mick Manning and Brita Granstroem title, was shortlisted for both the Carnegie and the Blue Peter Prize. 'Mick Manning and Brita Granstroem's approach to non-fiction for younger children has revolutionised our bookshelves.' The Scotsman

They have been producing award-winning non-fiction picture books for almost twenty years. They show that the best non-fiction for children can be scholarly, albeit with a light touch, and can have some of the imagination-stretching qualities of fiction. They are well known for their exciting performances involving readings and live drawing using overhead camera projection (often involving participation from members of the audience) all mixed with an audio-visual presentation. They appear on a regular basis at major ...
