Description - Bad Boy, Billy! by Gerald Rose
Suitable for children in Year 1 (age 5), Bad Boy, Billy! is from the Cambridge Reading genre strand Narrative Recounts, a strand which motivates children to explore their personal responses and make links to their own experiences. Each story in this set of nine is a true and significant event from someone's childhood. While some of the stories are set in modern Britain, others take place in the 1930s or 1940s in locations as diverse as Hong Kong and Trinidad. Bad Boy, Billy!, retold by Gerald Rose, tells the story of Elizabeth Rose. Liz grew up in a small village in Suffolk. During the Second World War, anyone with a garden was asked to 'Dig for Victory' by growing their own fruit and vegetables. Billy lived in the orchard at the end of Liz's garden.
