Synopsis

Hobby Farm and Seeing Red by Paul Jennings, Andrew Weldon

Ricky is an ordinary ten-year-old boy, who dreams of being famous. And he has a secret that might just help him realise this dream. Because Ricky can fly. Truly. He can really fly. But there's a hitch. He can only fly when absolutely no one is looking. If a person, or an animal, or a bird sees him while he's flying, he will fall out of the sky and almost certainly die. Will he risk flying in public, just for a shot at being something more than ordinary? Saving chickens from a flood, escaping a raging bushfire and impressing Samantha (again!) are just some of Ricky's challenges in these two hilarious stories, told in words and cartoon pictures.
