SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD


A SUNDAY TIMES CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK

Freddie Yates likes facts. Just not the one staring him in the face - that his secret plan is not, in fact, secret.

Because Freddie's journey wasn't meant to involve Big Trev and the onion-eating competition or the loo-exploding pear-and-potato turnovers. And Freddie definitely didn't expect to end up, with his two best friends, on national television in a supergirl costume.

But journeys never take you where you think they will. And for Freddie, that fact might just have to be enough...

"Miracles may or may not happen, although coincidences do, but the laugh-out-loud story is, in the end, heartwarming about all kinds of families." The Sunday Times

"A big-hearted comic journey about friendship, family, and a miraculously well-timed seagull." David Solomons, author of My Brother is a Superhero

"This sleuthing-trip-cum-crime-solving spree has all the fizz of Jeremy Strong." The Observer

"One of the funniest books you'll read this year, with bundles of heart to boot." Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

Jenny Pearson
Jenny Pearson has been awarded six mugs, one fridge magnet, one wall plaque and numerous cards for her role as Best Teacher in the World. When she is not busy being inspirational in the classroom, she would like nothing more than to relax with her two young boys, but she can't as they view her as a human climbing frame. Her debut novel, The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates, was shortlisted for the Costa Children's Book Award and selected as a Waterstones Book of the Month.
