“According to UNESCO the biggest single indicator of whether a child is going tothrive at school and in work is whether or not they read for pleasure. Pleasure can’tbe taught. Pleasure can only be shared. When my Dad took me down the park, with aflyway, he did not say, “Right, son, I’m going to teach you some basic ball skills, workon general fitness and spatial awareness and if you’re really good, then in a few years’time, we’ll have a game of footie.” No, he played with me. The fact that he was havingfun too was really important. Our hope is that the stories in HEROES will be shared andenjoyed in the classroom by pupil and teacher alike. Because pleasure is the mostpowerful motivation.”
 Frank Cottrell Boyce, Series Editor.
