"Hilarious, heartwarming new series, sprinkled with comic strips and full of fun"
February 2024 Book of the Month
Meet Ferris Foster, star of what should become a long running and very popular series of books. Ferris lives with his mums, both very into recycling and re-using, his little foster sister Keely, waiting for her forever home, and his dog Aldo. Ferris loves cartooning and has made Aldo, in the guise of Astoundog, a superhero in the comic he sells in the school playground. The fly in the ointment is his next-door neighbour show-offy Destiny, owner of super-talented poodle Princess Foo-Foo. When Ferris somehow ends up betting that his videos of Aldo, who in real-life is distinctly un-superhero-ish, will get more views than Destiny’s of Princess Foo-Foo, well, it looks like half-term, possibly even his whole life, will be ruined especially because what’s at stake is Keely’s much-loved, totally irreplaceable blanket. Luckily for Ferris, his cool new foster sister Tia is ready to lend a hand.
Everything about this book is a joy – Ferris’s cartoons, his efforts to turn sleepy Aldo into an internet sensation, the descriptions of his family life – heck, even Destiny is less awful than we thought. Funny, heartwarming and full of characters who become our friends – don’t miss!
