Malorie Blackman Biography Press Reviews

Full marks to Tamarind for their excellent Black Stars series. Children need positive role models and this, precisely, is what the series will provide. Highly recommended * Scholastic Junior Education * 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 * The Black Stars series teaches children a very important lesson - never give up on your dreams * Carousel *
