The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Marsh Award 2006.
A magical story about the power of a child’s imagination to free him from the tyranny of a brutalizing father. Thomas’s father imposes a reign of terror on his family through punishment and violence. Although Thomas suffers physical abuse, he keeps his mind clear by imagining a host of wonderful things which he records in his Book of Everything. Through this record, he is determined to find happiness. And he does in this uplifting story about the crushing of bullying and bigotry.

The Book of Everything by Guus Kuijer
Thomas's strictly religious father rules the house with his fists, and insists the family live according to the Bible. But Thomas has an escape route. He sees incredible things that no one else notices, like the tropical fish swimming in the canal. His biggest ambition is to be happy. But will that ever be possible with his father around?
