Synopsis

My Brilliant Book! by Michael Broad

When Sam gets bored of all his books, he decides to make a book of his very own - a brilliant book with lots of brilliant things in it, like dinosaurs, cowboys, aliens and much more. But when Sam's sister points out that his book doesn't make sense, Sam has another idea and, suddenly, his book is better than ever. A fabulously entertaining book within a book, with quirky illustrations, a contemporary voice and a mini "brilliant book" for the reader inside.
