This is a new title in "Young Reading Series Three", which is aimed at children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories. It tells the life story of the famous Elizabethan captain Francis Drake, from his humble beginnings to fame and fortune sailing the high seas and defeating the Spanish Armada. It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.
