BEWARE THIS IS A BOOK REALLY ONLY SUITABLE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN The earlier review posted on by John Plowright was somewhat misleading and appears to treat the book as an authoritative work although he does eventually make passing reference to its suitability for children at the very bottom of his lengthy first paragraph However it is actually a book suitable ONLY for very young children on the subject of dazzle painting of ships during the First World War To be fair the reading level for the book is shown as '4 8 years' in the product information update now shown as ‘7 11 years’ but when buying books on the website I don't generally check their reading level Usually it’s pretty obvious but I'll be sure to do so in future Unfortunately prior to ordering this book I judged it by its cover and its 'product description' which at the time I bought it gave no real indication of its target audienceThe book's concept seems to have been one of trying to get very young kids interested in that period of history perhaps seen as being 'boring' because most photographs of that period are in black & white by engaging them via the use throughout of brightly coloured interpretive illustrations cartoons and simplistic minimal text Indeed Mr Plowright's review contains almost as much text as the book itselfI bought this from the Book Depository because like themselves they generally send their items in stout cardboard packaging but although the seller has agreed to accept return of the item they have made no provision for covering the cost of my doing so by post or otherwise
