ABOUT THE AUTHOR

4th book in The Secret Adventures of Rolo series. Other mythical creatures are introduced - and more dragons! History adventures for Rolo include King Alfred's Wessex (who burned the cakes?), What really happened at the Bronze Age Settlement at Must Farm? The Christmas truce of 1914 - was there really a football match in no-man's land?, the founding of the UAE in 1971...and many other exciting chapters narrated by Rolo and interspersed with his funny blogs about his everyday life.
My primary school class and I are fans of this author's writing and we were really looking forward to book 4. It was definitely worth the wait. As before, there are stories through time but the author has kept the story fresh by including adventures with fantasy creatures too. Watch out for the unicorns and more dragons! The adventure to Must Farm in its bronze age origins will be a great way into our history topic but I love the ways these stories nurture a love of reading and language as well. I will also be recommending the First World War and Greek stories to my colleagues to bring their history topics to life. These stories are full of humour, joy and life and my class will love them.
