MEDIA REVIEWS
Horrible Histories author Terry Deary tells the story of the last year of the First World War. Set in France, this fast-paced adventure features a young French girl, a young German boy and a traitor with a silver hand. Packed full of historical detail, it's a real page turner. -- The Guardian
The Silver Hand by Terry Deary is an involving and well-plotted wartime adventure crisply written in short sentences, but rich in factual detail. -- The Sunday Times
In The Silver Hand, Terry Deary has illuminated the last year of the war for readers through a pacy adventure packed with accurate historical detail. And it's a pleasure to read. -- Jill Murphy, The Bookbag
This is a gripping story. The action creeps up on you at first as the story is established and I like the development of the characters at the start; however, it's safe to say that once the plot takes hold, it doesn't release you until the very end... This is the sort of book that stays with you long after you've read the last page and I found myself thinking of Aimee and Marius for days afterwards! -- K and O: Bonkers About Books
... this is a wonderful book that I thoroughly enjoyed and will be recommending to my class (Year 5). A truly engaging story set against an important period in British and world history that would fit well with anyone studying the First World War. -- Andrew Mullen, ReadingZone
Overall, this is a wonderful book that I thoroughly enjoyed and will be recommending to my class (Year 5). A truly engaging story set against an important period in British and world history that would fit well with anyone studying the First World War. -- Mr M Reads, Toppsta
Deary's storytelling is simple, historically accurate and compelling. -- INews The Essential Daily Briefing
