About this deal

So that suddenly you hear yourself repeating your father’s hackneyed phrases, feel entirely out of your depth and long to be the child you are really? He pretends to be the Dad of one of his class mates, a girl who he has a typical 12 yo relationship with.

Even though he’s only 12, Liam is constantly mistaken for an adult, but he’s still a kid who loves playing computer games and riding rollercoasters. When the opportunity comes up for Liam to use his height to his advantage, he manages to get himself on a rocket into space! It was full of funny situations that Liam had got himself into due to his height that made my class and I laugh out loud. Whereas Charlie is deserving because despite his unspeakable poverty he doesn't complain or challenge the system, but Liam earns his reward for working hard and challenging the status quo. Can you convince the organiser that the children need an adult to attend and thereafter that you can fulfil that role?On the first day of middle school, his principal thought he was a teacher and introduced him in the school assembly. That definitely helped to keep engagement with the story – I often found myself wanting to skip forward a bit to find out how they arrived on a spaceship spiralling out of control. In an unusual turn for a middle grade novel, it's also a reflection on fatherhood, and as our young protagonist attempts to be "dadly," (why? All of the main characters, but especially Liam and Florida, learn what "dadliness" is really all about. These jumps between past and the present day weren’t too difficult to follow and definitely made the book more engaging.

Honestly I think he went and sat in the hallway of some random World of Warcraft convention and wrote down a few terms and phrases then stuck them into his limited model of video games.I’d like this book to age gracefully, but its technological references and mentions that Tom Cruise’s teeth are completely false may make it difficult to peruse thirty years from now.

Mum, Dad – if you’re listening – you know I said I was going to the South Lakeland Outdoor Activity Centre with the school?

He is also the author of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again, Cosmic, Framed, The Astounding Broccoli Boy and Runaway Robot. There was the time he was the only kid tall enough to ride the roller coaster, which in turn led to him getting free rides (and freaking out his dad). Long-legged Liam makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space.

What starts off as a silly story about tricking adults quickly turns into a story about taking responsibility and caring for others, even when they do things to make your life difficult. The ceremony was met with worldwide acclaim and even included a section inspired by children's books. Prez has one summer to find ten things about the earth that make it worth saving - but can he do it? Now, granted, Moonshot is a picture book and Cosmic is a wordy bit of fluffy genius, but the two share one significant thing in common.But being super-sized height-wise has its advantages: he's the only eleven-year-old to ever ride the G-force-defying Cosmic rollercoaster – or to be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. The only problem is, he needs someone to be his child, to take along with him, because the competition is for a parent and child. Once he went to a car dealership, and the salesman almost let him take a Porche out for a test drive. Imagine that you can deceive fairground attendants into permitting you onto the most dangerous rollercoasters.
