Synopsis

How to Lose a Lemur by Frann Preston-Gannon

Everyone knows that once a lemur takes a fancy to you there is not much that can be done about it. While being followed by lemurs, a boy tries hiding up a tree (without luck), disguising himself (without success) and even tries to sail off in a boat to get away from them - only to discover the lemurs snorkeling behind him. Eventually, after climbing mountains, taking trains and going through the air in a balloon, he finally thinks that he has lost them. Or has he? In the process, he has managed to get himself lost, and it is only then that he realizes that the cunning lemurs might just come in handy after all.

From the highly acclaimed author of The Journey Home and Dinosaur Farm comes this new three part series: How to Lose a Lemur, How to LOVE your Lemur and When Lemurs Come to Christmas.

Frann Preston-Gannon's The Journey Home has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2013, Junior Magazine Design Awards (Best Picture Book and Best New Talent categories) and the Cambridgeshire Picture Book Award 2013.
