Reviews

'In pacey prose for 8-10s, Tony Bradman’s Anglo-Saxon Boy lays out the adventures that befall Magnus, son of Harold Godwinson, in the run-up to the Battle of Hastings. It is underpinned by historical fact (Magnus existed), and includes, satisfyingly, a grandmother who leads troops, as the story chronicles the making of a warrior.' The Sunday Times Culture magazine
