Tom Crean: Hero of the South Pole

From the outset, Crean is presented as somewhat of a rebel, running away from home at age fifteen. His bravery is a defining characteristic which is seen again and again through his determined acts of valour. His story is told simply in this short non-fiction adventure book. The text is factual, educational and not overly complex. While it can be enjoyed by all readers, it could be utilised effectively to engage a reluctant reader. Simple use of language, short sentences and
straightforward writing make this book accessible.
