Wings - Spitfire

Paperback

Football meets fantasy in this second title of Tom Palmer's action-packed Wings trilogy. High-end production includes perforated jacket-flaps with plane models to cut out, assemble and collect. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

Greg is only happy when he's active – on the pitch or on his phone, it doesn't matter. But as soon as training's over or his host parent Steve takes the phone away, he's on edge. Steve suggests that Greg do something quiet with him, like making one of Steve's beloved Airfix kits. And the next thing Greg knows, he's in the cockpit of a Spitfire, being forced out of the sky by a German pilot! Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
