“Nelson”
I am in Yr.4 in a new school and was placed in Nelson house. This has prompted me to pick this book from my school library. I really enjoyed reading this book and I think that everyone that reads it will too.The author describes it so clearly that it seems as if you are in the exciting adventures as well. I learnt lots of interesting and fascinating facts by reading it. Lord Nelson's bravery and fighting spirit encountering Napoleon's army greatly inspired me from reading this book. I think Usborne Famous Lives series should be in every junior school library. Thanking You
