Longlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2014 - Shortlisted for the 2013 Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize & Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2013 - Best Story 

Award-winning David Almond tells a deliciously funny and refreshingly original story of Stanley, a boy who takes off on a journey of enlightenment and discovery after his uncle, whom he lives with, goes distinctly barmy and turns his home upside down by turning it into a canning factory. Stanley’s travels take him to joining a fairground family and taking on some new and surprising challenges which test his courage and resolve. Fast-paced, sometimes magical and always unexpected, this is a brilliant story with stunning illustrations by Oliver Jeffers.
