Fact Files by K. N. Chimbri
Stories by Kevin George & others

Ref: 16962

Produced in partnership with the wonderful Black Cultural Archives, this 'chunky' packed-to-the-rafters hardback brings together twelve stories by Black UK creators told through imagined letters, diary entries and short stories. In between are brilliantly assembled Fact Files by author Chimbiri taking in key events and figures from Black UK History, illustrated through striking archival photographs. The final flourish: a foreword by national treasure, Dame Floella Benjamin, recently appointed to be Chair of the Windrush Commemoration Committee. 'Lots of talking points and things for children to go away and research more. I like the way some stories use the patois, validating the language' (Edyta, Primary Teacher, Letterbox Library Reviewer). Age 8-12, Hardback 135pp
