Review:

Full marks to Tamarind for their excellent biography of Benjamin Zephaniah. Children, especially boys, need positive role models and this, precisely, is what the series will provide. The text is thoroughly absorbing, perfectly pitched to its young readership and interspersed with quality illustrations and smatterings of the poet's own work. Highly recommended for children aged 9 upwards (Anne Faundez Junior Education)

A useful and inspiring book written in language suitable for children aged 9-12, and for young people with literacy difficulties. Benjamin's story is charismatic; it drives hope into the hearts of those children who struggle with language difficulties (Vanessa Ogdon The Magazine of the National Association of Toy and Leisure Libraries)

Young readers are implicitly advised to follow their dreams and have confidence in themselves; and there are explicit warnings not to be bound by your own or other people's low expectations. These messages would have relevance to any child coming from a disadvantaged background or lacking self-esteem (Books for Keeps)

Book Description:

Moving story of a man who informs and amuses people all over the world, and how he overcame against the odds.
