    This playful book was a fun read aloud! The students were able to chime in regularly with the "me too!" phrase. Many of my students have siblings and were able to share stories of their younger (and sometimes older) siblings wanting to either imitate what they're doing or spoil their fun/5. Letter Perfect. This is a true story. It's a story about that special little boy or girl in your life. It begins with an enchantingly illustrated cover, personalized with that child's name and initial—from A is for Abigail to Z is for , the reader is first greeted by a personal message from you, whether words of advice, love, or encouragement/5().

    Finn’s ‘Chapman to Mee’ and Chapman’s ‘on Football’ are on the list. I think the history is by Grant and White (), which will be added to the list. Is the Virgin book you mention Bruce Smith’s ‘Arsenal Fact File’, which featured Virgin sponsorship on the cover? Five of his books have been short-listed in the British Sports Book Awards - Bertie Mee (Best Biography, ); Grovel! (Best Cricket Book, ); Nobody Beats Us (Best Rugby Book, ); Tony Greig (Best Cricket Book, ) and The Great English Final (Best Football Book, ).

      Bertie Mee’s main strength as a manager was his organisational ability and being able to delegate people to certain tasks. His biggest weakness was that tactically he was vey weak, but to his credit Bertie knew his limitations in that aspect of the job . The considerable research required for the author's earlier title presumably prompted the possibility of this ‘spin-off' and as a result we have the very welcome and pleasurable biography of one of The Arsenal's undervalued heroes, namely Bertie Mee.
