Synopsis

The Day of the Flying Thumbs by Steve Cole

New girl and boy, Sara and Sam, just want to get through their first day at school without sticking out like sore thumbs, but when real thumbs (and fingers) start turning up in odd places around school, they realize that Freekham High is seriously weird. They need to find out where the dastardly digits are coming from, which isn't easy when you're trying to keep a low profile. And when the lunch special is baked potato with thumbs followed by finger custard, not only are there freaky digits to deal with but the biggest vomit-fest ever! This hilariously surreal story is perfect for readers who prefer their humour a little on the dark side ...

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.
