'Funny and heartfelt with a cunning twist. Stewart Foster is a grandmaster' - ROSS WELFORD 'An inspirational underdog story and a chilling mystery! A winning combination' - DAVID SOLOMONS Some people think that I'm a problem child, that I'm lazy and never pay attention in lessons. But the thing is, I'm not a problem child at all. I'm just a child with a problem. Felix is struggling at school. His ADHD makes it hard for him to concentrate and his grades are slipping. Everyone keeps telling him to try harder, but no one seems to understand just how hard he finds it. When Mum suggests Felix spends time with his grandfather, Felix can't think of anything worse. Granddad hasn't been the same since Grandma died. Plus he's always trying to teach Felix boring chess. But sometimes the best lessons come in the most unexpected of places, and Granddad soon shows Felix that there's everything to play for.

The Bubble Boy

The Bubble Boy

Author: Stewart Foster Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 19/05/2016

Winner of the 9+ catergory of the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award and shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award Amir is mad. He's crazy. But the hospital wouldn't let a crazy person in. They must have interviewed him and checked his qualifications. But maybe he didn't even meet them? Maybe he hasn't even come from India. He might have arrived on an alien spaceship and snuck in here in the middle of the night. Eleven-year-old Joe can't remember a life outside of his hospital room, with its beeping machines and view of London's rooftops. His condition means he's not allowed outside, not even for a moment, and his few visitors risk bringing life-threatening germs inside his 'bubble'. But then someone new enters his world and changes it for ever. THE BUBBLE BOY is the story of how Joe spends his days, copes with his loneliness and frustrations, and looks - with superhero-style bravery, curiosity and hope - to a future without limits. Expect superheroes, super nurses and a few tears from this truly unique story. `Poignant, hopeful and heartbreaking' Fiona Noble - Children's Editor, The Bookseller 'Deeply moving and utterly gripping . . .
