Non- fiction and reference books are possibly the worst hit by the internet where factual information is so readily available, but last week at the 2013 Educational Writers’ Award ceremony I saw a wonderful example of one of these books, published by Templar, written by Tom Adams and illustrated by Thomas Flintham.
