The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a candid, poignant and modern story with definite comparisons to one of the classics of all time, The adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Humour is one of the classic hallmarks of Huckleberry Finn and in The Thing with Finn it is equally apparent. A ten year old boy embarks on a journey to find himself after the loss of his twin brother, that is both emotional and physical until at last he finds his way home. Why not read Huckleberry Finn as well as this one as together theyâ€™ll provide a unique insight into two worlds over 100 years apart but featuring boys of a similar age. We've chosen the original Penguin Classic edition and a shortened retelling published by Usborne.
The Thing With Finn by Tom Kelly
Ten-year-old Danny knows he's going somewhere, but he just doesn't know where. On his way, he ...flattens a stuffed otter (with a three-holed brick) ...messes with a dog called The Beast (who bites kids' willies off) and feeds biscuits to blue Louis (who puts the 'poo' into poodle). But however far or fast he goes, Danny can't outrun the memories that have chased him ever since his identical twin brother died. Where can Danny hide when every day his own face reminds him of Finn? And where can Danny go when everywhere the shadows of his past stretch to forever? The poignant story of a bereaved boy who embarks on an emotional journey - and ultimately finds his way home.
