The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest Age 9+ Reading Age 8+. Prize-winning Andy Stanton injects his trademark humour into this hilarious story about a teenage love affair. From the first moment he sees new girl Lizzie Harris, Sterling Thaxton knows he must go out with her. All the other girls in the school are crazy about him but can Sterling win over Lizzie? Things don’t go according to plan in love, maths or friendship but, when Sterling finds a talking canary it looks like all his problems will be solved.

Sterling and the Canary by Andy Stanton
Sterling Thaxton is in love. In love with Lizzie Harris - the beautiful new girl. Her hair is the colour of magic. Her nose is as sweet as music. Her arms are as slender as rainbows. Problem is, she's not interested. Luckily a small yellow canary turns up with some excellent advice. Hilarious comedy from the top selling author of the Mr Gum books.
'..it is published by the excellent Barrington Stoke publishers and labelled 'dyslexia friendly' so has all the line spacing and friendly print to assist struggling readers. But what is best - for any reader - it is that Sterling And The Canary is a highly readable and very funny tale.. First class stuff' - The Telegraph
