The Boy with Two Heads by Andy Mulligan

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A living, breathing, talking head, with a rude, sharp tongue and an evil sense of humour. It knows all your darkest thoughts and it's not afraid to say what it anybody. That's what happens to eleven-year-old Richard Westlake, and life becomes very, very complicated. Part thriller, part horror, part comedy - this is one of the most riveting novels about fear and friendship that you will ever read.


The Boy with Two Heads by Andy Mulligan

How would you feel if you woke up and found another head growing out of your neck?

Andy Mulligan won the 2011 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, and his international bestseller, Trash, is now a major film - directed by Stephen Daldry and with screenplay by Richard Curtis.

'[A] simple, funny and very engaging premise ... Mulligan rewrites tragedy as a triumph, and turns the story into a neat way to explore friendship and tolerance.' -- Josh Lacey Guardian
