You Wouldn't Want To Be A World War Two Pilot!
As an American pilot joining the RAF during World War Two, you’ll experience many ups and downs, and no doubt you’ll discover what a ‘Mae West’ is for! Get used to the lingo, commands and controls, otherwise it’s time to bail out! Educational, informative and engaging, this book teaches children the risks taken and sacrifices made in World War II and puts the reader at the centre of the action.
The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like for a pilot in World War II. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
