Synopsis

Oshie by Jon Blake

Oshie is an engaging, funny, enthusiastic and often rebellious boy - it just so happens he has cerebral palsy. In these four stories - from Oshie's starting at a new school and being shunned for his inability to play football to saving the day on the pitch - he wins the admiration, and hearts, of his classmates for the abilities which compensate for, and partially arise, out of his disability.

Jon Blake

Jon Blake's writing career began at the tender age of nine with his modestly titled newspaper, 'World Times'. His first book was published several years later, after a short career "being trodden into the ground by the Youth" as a teacher. He has since written many books for children including You're a Hero, Daley B!, and a trilogy of early readers about Little Stupendo, a stunt-girl extraordinaire!
