The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest Age 8-11 Reading Age 8+. A delicious comedy in which geeky George, whose passion for Warhammer games has long made him a social outcast, is transformed by some past its sell by date after shave. Suddenly everyone wants to be George’s friend. Can he escape? A humorous look at the pitfalls of popularity. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Without exception dyslexia-friendly books published by Barrington Stoke get off to an exciting start and maintain the impetus throughout, with a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter. The plot is clear, the characters appealing and there are plenty of visual clues, as dyslexics like to run a story like a video in their heads.

Desirable by Frank Cottrell Boyce
A touching comedy from a Carnegie Medal winning author is given a brand new package. George's birthday is as uneventful as ever. Until he opens his grandad's present and finds some aftershave and cufflinks from 1982. George's mum wants to recycle it, but for some strange reason George wants to hang on to it. And when he opens it, some very strange things start happening.
Hilarious comedy from Carnegie Medal winner Frank Cottrell Boyce. With a reading age of 8, it is particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers.
"This is a laugh-aloud book, which will touch the funny-bone of every young teen who’s felt the isolation of being ‘outside the pack’.” - Irish Examiner
