About Manfred the Baddie by John Fardell:
Kidnapping inventors, stealing from art museums, conducting acts of piracy on the high seas – will Manfred the Baddie ever learn his lesson? An exciting, hilarious book that children will want to read time and time again.

It appealed to a lot of the children in my class, especially the reluctant boys...it’s good for encouraging reluctant readers-the title appeals straight away!
I’m delighted that Manfred the Baddie is to be part of this terrific scheme. I know through my own visits to schools how much enthusiasm for learning and creativity can be generated through the fun of exploring books.
