Truth About My Unbelievable Summer by Benjamin Chaud

It's a first-day-of-school moment of truth: What really happened over the summer break? A curious teacher wants to know. The epic explanation? What started out as a day at the beach turned into a globe-spanning treasure hunt with high-flying hijinks, an outrageous cast of characters, and one very mischievous bird! At least, that's what the student says. Is this yet another tall tale, or is the truth just waiting to be discovered?


Davide and Benjamin know how to make kids laugh, and they understand how to hit that perfectly silly and fantastical note with both words and images. --Design Mom

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

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

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
