Happy Wednesday all, just a few more days until the weekend! Welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday. twirls
For today’s WoW I got a children’s book that is coming out next week (2 days after my birthday) featuring a boy who worries to much and who may turn into a chicken? And maybe even other animals? It sounds a bit like Animalcolm, a book I liked a lot which also featured a boy who can turn into animals.
But it seems that this book also features friendship, bullying (hopefully not too much, but I am also hoping he can use the powers against the bully), a brother in a hospital (what happened to him). It sounds very interesting.
Oh, and I can’t forget the illustrations by Sarah Horne, one of my favourite illustrators. I can’t wait to see her illustrations in this book. 💕
Charlie McGuffin tries to be an optimist, but in reality he’s a bit of a worrier.
Some of the things Charlie is worried about:
· His brother (who is in hospital)
· Their very panicked parents
· Unwanted attention from the school bully
· The fact that he’s started turning into animals!
Even though every kid wants a superhero power, Charlie isn’t keen on turning into a pigeon in the middle of the school play.
But what happens if he does? Will he get sent away for Science to deal with? Will his parents crack under the extra stress?
With the help of his three best friends, Charlie needs to find a way of dealing with his crazy new power – and fast!
