Hero on a Bicycle

Hero on a Bicycle by Shirley Hughes


Paolo is a young boy living on the outskirts of florence during the second world war. He is desperate to join the partisans, a group of rebels fighting the nazis, but they think he is too young. When two escaped prisoners of war comes to stay at his house it makes him even more determined to join. But still, he can’t. So Paolo tries to help in any other way.


This story is great for people who like books such as the Liam Scott series as well as private peaceful and war horse.

I think this book would be good for ages 10 to 13 and, as it’s a Shirley Hughes, I say give it a go.
