A FOREWORD BY LEMN SISSAY
Tales of the Weird, the Wild and the Wonderful is the first of its kind: a dazzling collection of short stories, jam-packed with rambunctious characters on daring adventures – written exclusively by Care Leavers for children.
Discover why Franny Georgette Tinkleboom has been travelling around the world in a van that has giant mouse ears… And why Spike, the most mischievous hedgehog in Rivington Pike, keeps wandering off into the dark night… And what happens when you drink a wicked orange potion like Alicia Moonfall…
‘A celebration of what it is to be a fighting spirit in a world, which prefers you to be quiet and get on’ writes Lemn Sissay. ‘The value is inestimable and beyond measure… Enjoy this vital work as a celebration of what it is to be young, creative and empowered’.
