One of our Dyslexia Friendly Books of the Year 2015 - Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 7  “When I was young, I lived in Liverpool and my best friend was a boy called Midge.” In this lovely little book Roger McGough describes a couple of the adventure he had with Midge. They might have taken place back in the 1950s but they are just the kind of thing that children still find exciting today – running away to sea, a bit of secret agent activity around big sister’s party. In Barrington Stoke style, they’ve been written in a way that makes them accessible to all readers. True and funny, the stories are told with a simplicity and directness that makes them as refreshing as the breeze that buffets the ferries on the Mersey.  ~ Andrea Reece
