Freddie Yates is about to have a summer holiday he will never forget
Adventure of a lifetime
Freddie Yates loves facts, but when he learns a fact about his own life he sets off on a secret mission to Wales with his two best friends in tow. Of course, things don’t quite go to plan and he is soon wishing he packed more than one pair of spare underpants!
Freddie’s journey wasn’t meant to involve Big Trev and the onion-eating competition or the loo-exploding pear-and-potato turnovers. And Freddie definitely didn’t expect to end up on national television in a supergirl costume.
Fun filled debut
The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates is the debut novel of Jenny Pearson who is regarded as the ‘Best Teacher in the World’ according to the six mugs she has received from her students. And it’s not hard to see why her class enjoyed her lessons. Freddie Yates is one of the funniest children’s books I have read in ages.
The story flows effortlessly from one mishap miracle to another yet underneath the fun there is a heart-warming message about the true nature of family and friendship. The author tackles some big emotions but with sensitivity and humour. You will giggle out loud at the trio’s escapades and shed a tear as Freddie learns what is really important in life.
Fans of David Walliams and David Solomons, both children and their parents, will love this new young accidental hero.
